3RD LESSON ISAIAH 9 VERSES 2, 6 & 7
CHRIST'S BIRTH AND KINGDOM ARE FORETOLD BY THE PROPHET ISAIAH
The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light; on those who lived in a land as dark as death a light has dawned. For a child has been born to us, a son is given to us; he will bear the symbol of dominion on his shoulder, and his title will be: Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty Hero, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. Wide will be the dominion and boundless the peace bestowed on David's throne and on his kingdom, to establish and support it with justice and righteousness from now on, and for evermore. The zeal of the Lord of Hosts will do this.
