Texts: Genesis 22:18; Isaiah 52:13-53:12
In my last week’s Journal, I began with the premise that the message of Christmas started in the Garden of Eden.It was embedded in the curse on the serpent and on Eve for their rebellion against God. The Journal traced the family line from Seth, the third son of Adam to Shem, one of the sons of Noah. Moreover, Noah descended from Seth. I quoted Saint Matthew’s record of the genealogy of the Messiah, from Abraham to Joseph, Who hailed from the line of King David.
