And He Shall be Called: How Isaiah Describes the Messiah

There’s a renowned verse in Isaiah 9 that brings great comfort to all who hear it. Much of the hope and comfort that emanates from Isaiah 9:6 comes from the names or titles the prophet gives to the anticipated Messiah: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. For people looking and hoping for the Messiah, these names describe what they can expect him to be like. Unlike the Israelites, we know the name of the long-awaited Messiah. We call him Jesus Christ. In this Groundwork series, we'll seek renewed hope and comfort in our lives by studying Isaiah's descriptions of the Messiah to learn more about who Jesus is and see, even more clearly, how he fulfilled the prophecies.
