The Coming of Jesus Christ  - past, present and future.


The Three-fold nature of Advent
These studies will make use of the threefold aspect of Advent, namely: 1) getting ready for the coming of Jesus, the birth of the Christ child, 2) preparing ourselves for the coming of Christ into our lives, and 3) looking expectantly to the coming of Christ at the end, the return of Jesus Christ.
We will consider what each of these aspects mean in Christian understanding and what they mean for us during this Advent season.

The Studies
The following themes will be covered throughout the four weeks of Advent:
1. Looking to the future – the end of the age, waiting in hope.
We will consider the set Bible readings, a quote from Jürgen Moltmann, a story from Nelson Mandela, and a song “How Long” by Robin Mann.

2. Words of assurance – signs of hope, assured hope.
We will examine the set Bible readings, a quote from Hans Küng, recall the life of Gladys Aylward, and a hymn “Blessed Assurance” by Frances Jane van Alstyne.

3. Preparing for the Messiah – getting ready, joyful hope.
We will consider the set readings, a quote from Wolfhart Pannenberg, remember some of the life of Mother Teresa, and a song “Create in me a clean heart” by Keith Green.

4. God’s covenant and promises – on the way, confident hope.
We will examine the set Bible readings, a quote from Gustavo Gutierrez, hear about how Lifeline was started by Alan Walker, and a hymn “God of grace and God of glory” by Harry Emerson Fosdick.
