Read Together

And His Name will be called, Immanuel, God with us. Isaiah 7:14

Discuss Together

Isaiah, writing about the promised child many years before His birth, said that His Name will be called Immanuel, Hebrew for “God with us.” The Bible also says that God became flesh and lived (as a resident) among us, in our neighborhood. Joy Williams is a songwriter who wrote a song called, “Here with Us.” Some of the words are: “It’s still a mystery to me that the hands of God could be so small. How tiny fingers reaching in the night were the very hands that measured the sky. Hallelujah, hallelujah, Heaven’s love reaching down to save the world! Hallelujah, hallelujah, Son of God, Servant King, You’re here with us. You’re here with us.”
