Advent 2021 – Awaiting the Savior of the New Exodus (Pastor Dennis Allan)

  • by

This is the third week of our Advent series and Pastor Dennis Allan walks through Matthew 2. Magi arrive in Judea and go to the palace in Jerusalem to inquire about the birth of the new king, a new king that he will try to kill, forcing Joseph to flee in the middle of the night with his family to Egypt. At the end of chapter two, Joseph and his family return to the region and settle in Nazareth. It’s in Matthew 2 that we discover that the Savior we await this Advent is a Savior who will challenge unjust and evil political leaders and systems, meets us in our feelings of weakness, vulnerability, and insignificance, and leads us out of our captivity into an eternal Promised Land.
