This lesson is based on Isaiah 9:6-7 and Luke 2:25-35, and teaches us that Jesus’ birth was the fulfilment of a promise that had been
made a long time ago…. and that he is still saviour today.
READ: Isaiah 9:6-7 and Luke 2:25-35.
Many years before Jesus was born, God promised His people that He would send a saviour to them. He said that he would send them a ruler and a King who would free them and save them. Jesus was the fulfilment of God’s greatest promise.
DISCUSS: Can you think of a time that someone promised you something? Did they fulfil that promise? What does God promise to His people?
