Advent Announcements (2022)
This Advent series covers various announcements of the advent (coming) of a son. Beginning with the announcement after the Fall (Gen 3:15), God's People hoped for a coming "Seed of the Woman" who would bruise the Serpent's head. And throughout the Old Covenant, this promise was drawn forward, renewed, and signified in types and shadows to prepare for the ultimate Advent of the Son of God. We cover the announcements to Sarah, Manoah's Wife, Hannah, and of the Virgin conceiving, while also mentioning others in passing (e.g. Rachel, Rebekah, Ruth, and the Shunammite woman).
