From Children’s Ministry.
It had been four hundred years since God inspired a prophet to write the last book of the Old Testament. Hundreds of prophecies foretold of a king or Messiah who would come to save people and form a new covenant with them. Immanuel, God with us, would be born of a virgin in Bethlehem, the city of David. Not Herod, not the Pharisees, not the scribes, not the Romans could thwart the plan of God to deliver His people.
