Pastors who use the Lectionary will study the following passages in December:
December 15, 2013: Third Sunday of Advent
December 22, 2013: Fourth Sunday of Advent
I have written an article that provides exegetical information on these two Advent passages:
“A Desert Highway (Isaiah 35:1-10)”
“The Child Immanuel (Isaiah 7:10-16)”
My article, “What Are We Waiting For” was published in a book, Advent Ethics, published by the Center for Christian Ethics at Baylor University in 2010. My article also includes studies on two other Advent passages: “The Mountain of the Lord’s House (Isaiah 2:1-15)” and “The Peaceful Kingdom (Isaiah 11:1-10).”
Pastors who are also interested in a study on Isaiah 9:1-7 can also read my post, “From Text to Sermon: Isaiah 9:1-7.”
Have a blessed Advent season.
