The prophet Isaiah looked forward to the arrival of the Prince of Peace, whose reign would lead to eternal shalom. Isaiah’s words were fulfilled with the arrival of Jesus. This is why it is so significant that the angels described Jesus’ birth as one that would bring “peace on earth.”

Read: Luke 2:9-15, Isaiah 9:6-7

Reflection and Discussion Questions:

Why do you think God announced the arrival of the King to no-name shepherds? What does this tell you about the nature of God and his Kingdom?

Notice the words “highest” and “earth” in the angel’s worshipful announcement. What came from the heights of Heaven to Earth when Jesus was born? How is this good news?
