Monday, First Week of Advent: Hope               
December 1, 2014

Jesus, the Hope for the Gentiles and for All

and again Isaiah says,
“The root of Jesse shall come,
the one who rises to rule the Gentiles;
in him the Gentiles shall hope.”
(Romans 15:12, NRSV)

We take for granted that the Advent (coming) of Christ, born in a manger, brings hope to all people, not just the Jewish Christians of the early church.
