1st Sunday of Advent | Joseph – The Chain of Bondage is Broken
Matthew 1:18-25

Was the virgin birth a demonstration the great power of God? Does a virgin birth show us that Jesus' birth was a prophetic miracle? These two views are often referenced by many as the primary reason for this strange and awesome phenomena. No matter what evidence can be produced, the virgin origin of Jesus’ birth will never be repeated, because it is not a simple freak of nature or simply a miracle. Jesus birth had to be of a virgin and of a seed that is divine. The great significance of Jesus’ virgin birth lies in how this physical event fulfilled a spiritual need which exists in all mankind. We see Joseph acting in a highly righteous manner toward Mary. Though his actions were noble from a human viewpoint, this would not bring about a remedy to the need of all mankind. Only a complete, God/man, a “New Adam,” could fulfill God’s great plan of redemption. Only by a virgin birth could God break the chain of sin and engage the chain of redemption.

My Sheep Hear My Voice: Healed to Hear the Master
Mark 7:31-37

In his synoptic parallel Matthew gives a summary of this same missionary journey into the regions of Tyre and Sidon, Phoenicia, the land of the Gentiles. The people were amazed by the miracles and hearings that Jesus performed – upon Gentiles Mark links these verses chronologically with the previous section, both taking place in the regions of Tyre and Sidon. A great purpose being revealed by the Lord - Jesus is caring for the Gentiles by His words and His actions. And the fact that the Jewish Healer is healing them is the more strange and troubling part to them and to those following Jesus. As with the Syrian woman before, Jesus seems to be looking for something before He responds to the needs of these people. Mark specifically quotes Isaiah 35 which states: "The glory of Lebanon (this exact region) will be given to it, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the Lord, the splendor of our God. Strengthen the feeble hands, steady the knees that give way; say to those with fearful hearts, Be strong, do not fear; your God will come, he will come with vengeance; with divine retribution he will come to save you. Then will the eyes of the blind be opened and the ears of the deaf unstopped. Then will the lame leap like a deer, and the mute tongue shout for joy" (Isa.35:2-6). Jesus is not in the land of the Gentiles to find some time away from the Jews, He is there to seek and to save His people, those who will hear His voice. A new age is dawning, a new people is being formed, in Christ! The new covenant context is literally opening before this man’s ears and speech. He is being healed to hear his Master!
