Christ the Anointed
Daniel 2:36-45 We consider the statue of Nebuchadnezzar’s dream and its overthrow by the stone ‘cut without hands’. We are encouraged by this prophecy that the Lord Jesus will bring in an everlasting Kingdom that will cover the whole Earth and will be wiser, stronger a
Isaiah 28:16 We take another look at the Lord Jesus Christ as the chosen and precious Cornerstone. We see how he is described in Isaiah and in Peter, where this passage is quoted. We admire the qualities of our Savior that make Him such a precious, valuable, chosen an
Psalm 118:22-24 We review this very familiar passage and see from the New Testament how it speaks about the rejection of Christ by the Jewish leaders, His resurrection from the dead to become Head over all things for the Church and the commemoration of that event in the

Isaiah 11:1-10 We return to reflect on the Kingship of out Lord, Jesus Christ – how he would arise when the line of David had effectively been reduced to a ‘stump’ – how He would be anointed with the Holy Spirit to perform His ministry, how He would rule with justice an
Zechariah 6:12-13 Judah is returning from exile in Babylon. Here, Joshua the High Priest is to be crowned and then the crown is to be placed in the Temple as a memorial of the one who will build it. We see how all this points to the Lord Jesus Christ, the Branch from the
