About This Message Series

The Gospel writers make it clear that Jesus is the promised King of the Old Testament. In Jesus’ day, there were many different ideas of how this promised King would come and what He would be like, but the Gospel of Matthew makes it clear that the ultimate and perfect fulfillment of these promises is Jesus. Embedded in these first chapters of Matthew are many Old Testament prophesies. The narrative of Jesus’ birth and even His genealogy are written to explicitly announce the fulfillment of these prophesies and to leave no doubts that Jesus is indeed the Messiah, our promised Savior and King.

Together, in the season of Advent, we will see how Jesus is not only the promised fulfillment of Old Testament prophesy, but how He is our powerful, preeminent, and prevailing King today. Studying the narrative of Jesus’ birth, we will see how Matthew invites us to make Jesus our King, our only King. If Jesus is indeed the promised King, the Son of the Most High God and our only hope for salvation, then He demands our complete surrender.
