Lesson 2- Isaiah tells of the promised one.
Isaiah lived a long time before Jesus. He acted as a messenger of God, (prophet) listening to God’s words and encouraging the people of Israel to love and trust in God at all times. This was the way the people prepared. Sometimes the people lost their way and were not sure what to do.
Isaiah reminded the people of God’s promise to send them a son, who would be like a light to guide them and bring them joy. (Christians traditionally understand that ‘a son’ refers to the coming of Jesus).
Use the quote from Isaiah 9: 2, 6 – God’s Story 2, Someone is coming using the notebook, talk about the titles that are used by Isaiah to describe the promised one.
