Advent in Isaiah
Advent is a season of waiting. A time in which Christians seek to cultivate within themselves a sense of expectant longing for Christ and the kingdom he brings. As the New Testament authors sought to express what was happening in Christ's coming, they again and again turned to the book of Isaiah, finding within it a rich and varied expression of the Jewish people's longing for the coming of the Lord’s anointed. In this season of waiting, we examine this ancient text, and the manner in which it provides to the apostles, and to us today, a new grammar by which to speak of the coming of Jesus Christ.
