The Prophets

CONNECT #1:

What do you think you already know about the prophets in the Old Testament and the prophecies they made about Israel?

EXPLORE:

Read Isaiah 9:1-7, 40, 55

CONNECT #2:

What is one thing you read that you’d never noticed or known before? How does it change the story for you?

REDISCOVER:

“Poor Isaiah. He read God’s letter over and over to God’s people, but no one listened to him – at all. Ever. They didn’t want to hear God’s promise. They didn’t believe it.

Did it sound maybe too good to be true? A story that ends happily ever after? Well, it does sound like a fairy tale, doesn’t it? And, as anyone will quickly tell you, fairy tales aren’t true.

Or are they?”

CONNECT #3:

What does this story have to say about how much God loves you?
