SERIES: Jesus: Hope Foretold
MESSAGE: His Life Foretold
SPEAKER: Skip Heitzig
SCRIPTURE: Matthew 12:18-21

If your hope is in politics, policies, people, or possessions, you will be constantly disappointed. The hope that God gave the world, foretold by the prophets, was (and still is) a single, unique person—Jesus Christ. Of all the predictions made about what He would be and do, Matthew highlighted a few. Jesus wouldn’t fit all the misplaced expectations that people had of Him, but He would fulfill the commission His Father gave Him. Let’s look at four tasks Jesus would perform at His first coming as foretold by the prophet.


  1. He Came to Serve (v. 18)

  2. He Came to Speak (v. 18)

  3. He Came to Strengthen (vv. 19-20)

  4. He Came to Save (vv. 20-21)
