The Immanuel-Shaped Storyline of the Bible

Episode 39: Christmas Special – The Immanuel-Shaped Storyline of the Bible

“Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
She will give birth to a son,
and they will call him Immanuel,
which means, ‘God is with us.'”

Was Immanuel a brand-new idea that arrived with Jesus, or had it been there all along? Today we trace the theme of “God with us” through the Bible’s grand narrative. God created the world intending to dwell with his image-bearers, and the Bible tells the story of him working relentlessly to overcome creation’s great rupture in order to be with us again.
