Meaning of a Savior – part 2

13 11 2015

Is 9Last time we began the series, Meaning of a Savior and today we are going to unpack Isaiah 9:6 first phrase by phrase, then word by word as we look at Yeshua (Jesus) and who he is!


“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”    

Isa 9:6


We are tempted as we unpack this verse to overlook the first couple of phrases to get to the meat. Isaiah knew the importance of these first phrases so let’s unpack them too!


“For to us a child is born”, this first phase tells us several things about our savior. First, our savior is ours! We need to make our savior personal. The second is that our savior is real, because he was born just like you and I were, he wasn’tBaby beamed off of some space ship, sorry star trek fans. But he wasn’t. He was born in a manger. He lived the life of a child, he had dirty diapers and had to learn to walk and to talk. He had to deal with bullies and even being lost as a child.


This often overlook phrase reminds us our savior is real, as real as the fingers that are typing these words and your eyes that are reading this post. Our Savior, your savior and my savior, he is real. Let us rejoice as we meditate on the meaning of our savior, for he is indeed real and not some fictional character in a juice novel!


Join me next time as we unpack “to us a son is given”
