A long time ago… Many great stories begin this way. The story of the birth of Jesus is no different. A long time ago the story unfolded according to the prophecies of Isaiah and others. They told of a new home that would be built for God’s people, a home that would provide hope, peace and joy. Ultimately it would be the home of Jesus, God with us, Emmanuel. The A Long Time Ago series brings these prophecies to life so we can enjoy the hope, peace and joy that Christ brings to our lives today.
