If anyone deserved to be served, it was Jesus. Yet, he actually became the servant, modeling for us what it looks like to live an intentionally sacrificial life for his Father's glory and the ultimate good of all who would believe. This is what Mark records for us in his Gospel — the Son of God being the servant of man. Explore this second book of the New Testament with First Family this year as we delve into its theme, texts, and topics, seeing how God would have us live as his servants in the footsteps of Jesus.
Jesus’ life isn’t just a coincidence in time, or some ironic connection to a few earlier predictions. Not at all! Jesus embodies the ultimate fulfillment of God’s long-time promise in the Old Testament, for he is the final completion of all the prophets have said. Join us this Christmas as we explore Matthew’s five fulfillment scenes that all point to one Savior—Jesus Christ the Messiah.
