Who is this Jesus? He is the King whose Kingdom the Lord has established forever. (2 Samuel 7:12) He has deeper courage than David, (Luke 19:51) greater wisdom than Solomon, (Luke 11:31) and stronger faith than Elijah. (Matthew 4:1-11) He is the Son to be given, the child to be born. (Isaiah 9:6) He is Immanuel—God with His people. (Isaiah 9:19, 6:13) He will turn the hearts of fathers to their children and the hearts of children to their fathers. (Malachi 4:6) Where there is despair, He brings hope. Where there is brokenness, He brings healing. Where there is sadness, He brings joy. Where there is bondage, He sets people free.
