Preacher:
Passage: Matthew 1: 18-25
Service Type:

Zephaniah is prophesying before the exile, during the time of King Josiah. He is both warning the people of God’s impending judgement and offering a word of hope that a time will come when the remnant will be restored. Z promises that God will be present with the people in that restoration. The parents chosen for the messiah, Mary and Joseph, are not who we might expect them to be, far different from the exemplary Zecharaiah and Elizabeth (Luke 1:57-80)
