The Miraculous Birth of the Promised Son

Text: Hebrews 11:11-12
Speaker: Jim Newheiser
Outline: PDF

The birth of Christ was both foretold and foreshadowed.  Hebrews 11 tells of the miraculous birth of Isaac (when Abraham and Sarah were way beyond childbearing years) through whom God’s promises to Abraham came to pass.  The LORD designed Isaac’s birth to be a picture of the birth of Christ Who is the true Seed of Abraham through Whom all of God’s promises to Abraham are fulfilled.  There is a sense in which we who believe are also miracle babies and children of Abraham.

Please read Romans 4:13-25, Genesis 18:1-16 and Genesis 21:1-8 before listening to this sermon.
