Jesus is the fulfillment of Israel’s story. All that God chose the nation of Israel for has reached its end in Jesus. All that was foretold about Jesus—he would be Immanuel, Deliverer, anointed descendant of David (Messiah), Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace—came true with the birth of a baby born in the village of Bethlehem. Israel’s hope, born that day, is also ours.
