This week, Jack Palmer and John Van Hise join with Pastor Andrea Fluegel to discuss the birth of John the Baptist. His birth to an old man and a barren woman reminds us of familiar Old Testament stories. John called by God in this story of redemption is the bridge between the Old Testament and the New Testament. He is a forerunner of the birth, life and death of Jesus. What does it mean for you to repent, to turn back to God, as John later proclaimed? What does the miracle of the birth convey to you this Advent season? As a child of God what are you being called to be and do?
During this series, we explore various Prophets of the Old Testament. What did they have to say about God's justice, love and mercy? How did they speak God's grace into the darkest of times? And how are we challenged by them today?
