I’m at Dan Dumas’ blog today writing about the Old Testament hope for a Messiah. And stay tuned for upcoming articles from other contributors to the Advent series.
My post is called “Good News and Merry Promises,” and here is the opening paragraph:
The newborn baby, wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger, was proof that God keeps his promises. These promises came in the form of prophecies, covenants, figures, and types. The story of the Old Testament was a long road of hope, but the path was not straight or smooth. Yet amid temptation, sin, failure, despair, and death, God’s promises propelled forward by his sovereign power.
