Product Description

Prophets prophesied about him. Angels and shepherds rejoiced at his birth.  Friends cried for joy at his resurrection. And we still celebrate him today. He  is Jesus, the Messiah.

Perfect for Advent or Lent, this study guide explores some of the key  passages in the Old Testament about the Messiah and their completion in the life  and saving work of Jesus. These passages have had a profound effect on the  imagination and worship of Christians for two thousand years, leading George  Frederic Handel to write one of the greatest expressions of worship and  adoration—his oratorio, the Messiah. 

We hear parts of it sung every year during the Christmas season, but what  many listeners fail to realize is that the entire text of Handel's  Messiah is drawn from Scripture—and many of the Old Testament passages  that shaped Israel's hope for their Redeemer are included in that text. This  guide leads you through Scripture passages used in Handel's work that highlight  who Jesus is and what he came to do. It might change the way you listen to the  Messiah. Even more, it might change the way you live.
