Sermon Notes 4 December 2022

[ 8.30am & 10.30am ]
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?

      [ 3pm & 5pm ]
      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?
