“Because of Bethlehem…We Have HOPE”

December 3, 2017


In the first message in our Advent Series, ‘Because of Bethlehem…,’ we look at the song, (“Benedictus”) that Zechariah, husband of Elizabeth, who is cousin to Mary, sang when his son John was born.  This praise song speaks of  HOPE to the people of Israel in God’s coming in faithfulness & power (“God’s hand” & “horn of salvation.”)  And it speaks of a future HOPE in the coming of the Lord (“the rising sun will come to us…”).  Therefore, we hear and are reminded, Because of Bethlehem…we have HOPE.”
