“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” — Isaiah 9:6
Dr. Jack MacArthur
Nearly 2,000 years ago a Jewish maiden went down into the mysterious land of motherhood and came back with a child. And it has well been said, to this child was given a name that blossoms on the pages of history like the flowers of a thousand spring times in the confines of a single garden. It is a name that echoes and re-echoes down the corridors of time like the music of a thousand choruses, visible and invisible, rising in crescendo, a glorious anthem. A name that adorns the record of the centuries like the splendor of a thousand monuments, built of the purest of precious stones. A name that is grander and greater and more glorious and more meaningful than all the other names of the world. And when this child became a man, behold what manner of man He was!
He had none of the usual advantages. His parents were poor. He never recruited an army. He never conquered a kingdom. He never owned any real estate. He never wrote a book. He never founded an institution of higher learning. He never painted a picture. He never composed any music. He was mocked and scorned by the great, and died the death of a common criminal. And yet, this peerless person has literally revolutionized the civilized world, and whatever semblance of civilization there is left in this thermonuclear bomb-threatened world in the midst of its night of darkness, unbelief and sin, is solely and only because of Him and because of His presence.
