Savior & King

Matthew 1:18-21
Joel Webbon

At the time of Jesus’ birth, the nation of Israel was asking God for salvation. For them, salvation meant liberation from the rule of the Romans. In order to receive this salvation they needed a savior. The savior they asked for was a warrior dressed for battle, but the savior they received was a baby wrapped in swaddling clothes. They wanted the fierce lion, but what they needed was the sacrificial lamb.
