What were the expectations and desires of the Jewish people for a king, before the birth of Jesus? Well they looked in every direction but in God’s. And though God gave answers, looks, even glimpses into who they should be expecting, a dichotomy existed between what the people of Israel sought for a king and what God wanted to offer them, and He did so in the most noteworthy way through the prophet Isaiah. And in this sermon taken from Isaiah 8 Pastor Tim Bresnahan brings us through the attitudes, beliefs, desires and tensions of the people to finally what they were refusing to seek, and that was God.
