In Isaiah 9:6, a divine utterance is given to us using four royal titles – Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father and Prince of Peace. Names of Messiah ponders each title and how the people understood it then, how Jesus did or did not fulfil the title, and how Christians interpret Jesus as representative of that title.
Christians have claimed from the beginning that Jesus was the Messiah as foretold in the Old Testament. In this study, bestselling author Water Brueggemann tackles the questions: What were these expectations? and Did Jesus fulfil them? Perfect for individual or group study, this book includes prayer and questions for reflection that can be used each week.
