The Story Seldom Told
The Story of a Prophet
Luke 2:25-32

The Old Testament Prophecies have all the earmarks of a great story as they point toward the coming Messiah.

Today, we aren’t going to focus on the prophecies concerning the birth of Jesus, instead we are looking at the prophecy concerning the purpose of Jesus.

Here is the story of a man who was living in the hope of a promise.

That first Christmas happened because in God’s opinion the world should go on, and not just go on but to go on with hope.

But sometimes, God pushes aside the natural laws that he puts in place and a supernatural healing takes place.

And the question is still being asked today, “What must I do to inherit eternal life?”

And that hope that we have is a hope based on the assurance of the word of God when we are told in I John 5:13, I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
