The Carols of Christmas 1 O Come, O Come Emmanuel

Isaiah 7:14 by Mark Smith
Series:The Carols of Christmas

In this series on the carols of Christmas we'll explore the stories behind some of our best-loved Christmas music. This week: O Come, O Come Emmanuel, a hymn based on ancient Latin texts. The title and first verse reflect an ancient prophesy about someone who'd be born and bear the name Emmanuel, or God with us. Who could this be? The Christmas story makes the identity of this one clear. We'll learn how we can celebrate the astonishing truth that God came to be with us in his Son, Jesus Christ, and we'll learn how that truth can change the way we live today.
