GOD’S LOVING PLAN TO SAVE US. 神拯救我们的慈爱计划：
Our lesson today shows us the many people who were waiting for Jesus. Some were poor, some lived in Jerusalem all of their lives. Some were Jewish people who worked in the temple .They knew and studied the Scriptures every day. Some were very wealthy and educated.
The Magi were probably from a country called Babylon (now Iraqi) They were a class of people who served their king as priests, and astronomers . Daniel had been the leader of the Magi when he lived in Babylon 600 years before Jesus was born. It could have been Daniel who told people about the coming of our Savior. It could be that these Magi passed this hope down to the next generation of Magi.
God put a special star in the sky. He revealed to the Magi that it would lead them to their Savior, if they followed it to the East.
The gifts the Magi brought were expensive and perfect for Jesus, the God-man who would die for all people. Gold means royalty-Jesus is our King. Frankincense is like the incense that was burned as a prayer to God in the temple. Jesus is God. Myrrh was a perfume that was used in burial. Jesus is Man.
God guided each of these people to find and worship Jesus. How could all of these people find this Baby?
Scripture prophesies were fulfilled. Micah 2:5 tells that Bethlehem will be the birthplace of God’s Leader of His people. Hosea 11:1 foretold that Jesus would live in Egypt for a time. Jeremiah 31:15 tells of the sadness that Herod caused in Bethlehem. Matthew 2: 23 tells us that prophets told that Jesus would live in Nazareth.
圣经的预言都被应验。玛拉基书2:5 告诉我们伯利恒将是神子民的领袖的出生地。何西阿书11:1 预言耶稣将在埃及生活一段时间。耶利米书31:15 讲述希律王在伯利恒对百姓制造悲剧。马太福音2: 23告诉我们先知说耶稣将生活在拿撒勒。
THIS WEEK: 本周：
Mary and Joseph did all that Jewish law required of newborn sons. Read Luke 2:21-24. Jesus was a first-born son. What did that mean?
Simeon was waiting for his Savior to come. Read Luke 2: 25-27. What had the Holy Spirit told him?
Simeon was now ready to die. Read Luke 2: 28- 35. What did he prophecy about Jesus?
西面现在可以安然去世。读路加福音2: 28- 35。他对耶稣的预言是什么？
Read Luke 2:36-40. Who was Anna? What did Mary and Joseph do ?
The Magi looked for Jesus in the capital city Jerusalem. Read Matthew 2:1-6. Who knew where Jesus was to be born?
Herod was jealous and lied to the Magi. Read Matthew 2:7-12. Why didn’t the Magi return to tell Herod how to find Jesus?
Two prophecies are fulfilled in this reading. Read Matthew 2:13-18. Herod was a cruel king. How did he respond to being tricked?
Read Matthew 2:19-23. What did Joseph learn in a dream? Why did he go to Nazareth? 读马太福音2:19-23。耶稣在梦中知道什么？他为什么去拿撒勒？
GOD SPREADS HIS MESSAGE: 神传播他拯救的信息：
Joseph heard from God in dreams. God had important information about His Son. What did he learn in the first dream? ( (Mary) will give birth to a son, and you are to give Him the name Jesus, because He will save His people from their sins. Matthew 1:21)
约瑟在梦中听到神的话。神传达关于他儿子的重要的信息。在第一个梦里他知道什么？（马利亚）他 将 要生一个儿子，你要给他起名叫耶稣，因他要将自己的百姓从罪恶里救出来。马太福音 1:21
The name Jesus means the Lord saves. How did Joseph and Mary know what the angel was talking about? (The prophecies in Isaiah and other Scriptures told about a Savior. Joseph heard these prophecies often in the synagogue.)
How can a baby save us from our sins? (Jesus is God.)
Which happenings in the lessons we’ve had in the last weeks point to the fact that Jesus is God?( Gabriel, an angel announced his birth, shepherds heard a chorus of angels in a field, the Holy Spirit told Simeon and Anna that Jesus was in the temple, a star appeared to show the Magi the way to Jesus. The Holy Spirit showed Himself in songs that people sang.)
What might you want to praise God for this Christmas?
Prayer: My Holy Jesus. You came from heaven to be born a human person, so that You could save me from eternal death. Let me thank you with my whole heart this Christmas. Let me sing like Anna and Simeon in worship and praise. Let me live to honor you in service to all who You want me to serve. I love you Jesus. Amen.
