The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.

– Isaiah 9:2 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org, Author of Making Sense of the Bible

The time of Isaiah was extremely difficult. Israel was falling apart under the assault of the Assyrian Empire. It was a very dark time as far as the people of God were concerned. Yet in the midst of their suffering Isaiah proclaimed a promise that the apostle Matthew later applied to the birth of Christ—Christ’s light has come to illuminate our soul. Jesus is not just a good teacher; he is the great light that we need in order to know how to go forward in the midst of the hardship of life.
