The Advent of Jesus Christ : Journey with the People, Events and Prayers: Bible Study and Reflections
The time of Advent, culminating in the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, is familiar to most of us. But seldom do we linger long over these passages in Scripture that are so important to our faith. This book is a ten-part journey where you will meet those who first encountered Jesus. You will walk with Him through the first two chapters in each of the Gospels of Luke and Matthew-this is all that is written in Scripture about Jesus' first thirty years. You will meet Zechariah, Elizabeth, Blessed Virgin Mary, Joseph, John the Baptist, the Angels, the Shepherds, Simeon, and Anna, and you will be a part of the most meaningful events in their lives. You will discover three pairs of events related to Jesus' coming, including two annunciations, two births and two circumcisions. You will pray the four great prayers, also called canticles or little songs of the Church, including, Mary's Magnificat, Zechariah's Benedictus, the Angels' Gloria and Simeon's Nunc Dimittis. This journey will take you amazing places-thousands of miles from your home and over 2000 years ago. Through the Word of God, Jesus wants you to meet His family and friends and the Holy Spirit promises to be your guide.
