We see in the pages of Scripture that God’s unfolding story is moving toward a climax. While we as New Testament believers wait for Jesus’ return, believers in the Old Testament waited for His initial arrival. In this seasonal study of Jesus’ incarnation, even in the midst of a study of Old Testament events, it is helpful to keep the Old Testament perspective in mind. Sin deeply marred the perfect world God had created, but God would send His Son to implement a plan of redemption and restoration (Gen. 3:15). Even preschoolers can understand that God was preparing His people for Jesus’ coming, and that when God’s Son finally came to earth as a baby, it was right and proper to welcome and worship Him. Accordingly, we rejoice over His arrival and worship Him today! Lessons in this unit are listed below. To purchase this unit for $24.95, simply click the red “Buy Unit” button above.
