Sermon Notes 27 November 2022

[ 8.30am & 10.30am ]
The Ancestors: They waited for Him

Speaker: Mr Quek Tze-Ming
Matthew 1:1-17

A List of Names? Seriously?

A Bunch of Men

  • saints and sinners

An Assortment of Women

  • unexpected and embarrassing

A Strange Beginning for Jesus (and Us)

Questions for Reflection and Discussion:

  1. How far back can you trace your lineage? How does that make you feel? Why?
  2. Read Matthew 1:1–17. In the genealogy of Jesus which names are familiar to you? 
  3. What difference does it make to you, that we know this list of Jesus’ ancestors?

    [ 3pm & 5pm ]
    The Prophets: They spoke about Him

    Speaker: Mr Joel Khoo
    Matthew 1:18-25; Isaiah 7:10-17


    An ordinary birth? (Matt 1:18-21)

    If the Prophets Spoke of this Son – What’s so special about him?

      1 ) His special name – Immanuel (Matt 1:23)

        2 ) His special significance (Isaiah 7:10-14)

        a. God will rescue

        b. God will judge

        The Sign has come – how will you receive the Son?

        Questions for Reflection and Discussion:

        1. Will you put your trust in God? How does the sign of the son give us confidence in God?
        2. How does understanding the prophecy from Isaiah 7 give weight to the event of Jesus’ birth? How might that help us rejoice in Jesus more this Christmas?
