Isaiah 7:1-17 (Full Passage Link)

Today's Old Testament Passage
"If Christ had arrived with trumpets and lain in a cradle of gold, His birth would have been a splendid affair. But it would not be a comfort to me. He was rather to lie in the lap of a poor maiden and be thought of little significance in the eyes of the world. Now I can come to Him. Now He reveals Himself to the miserable in order not to give any impression that He arrives with great power, splendor, wisdom, and aristocratic manners."-Martin Luther
Scene 4: Immanuel – God with us
"…Matthew wants to emphasize that Jesus, as God, is ‘with us’; deity is immanent. Too often those who have rightly contended for Jesus’ full deity have created a God to whom they do not feel close rather than One who became human in every way like them but without sin (Heb 4:15). As God ‘with us,’ Jesus enables us to come boldly before God’s throne (Heb 4:16) when we accept the forgiveness of sins He made available (Matt 1:21) and develop an intimate relationship with Him.” -Craig Blomberg
