This is the heart-molding story of Jesus of Nazareth, the promised Seed of the Woman which was to conquer and eventually destroy the adversary of mankind—the serpent, the devil. This is the story of the central theme of all Scripture, the account of the life and ministry of the long-looked-for, and yet misunderstood and rejected by most, Messiah, Emmanuel—God with us. Take time to meditate upon the life of He whom accepted into one’s life, transforms the mind and heart and promises to each repentant son and daughter of Adam time without end—eternal dwelling with Him who during His three-and-one-half years of ministry demonstrated His ability to deliver us from sin, and to wipe away all tears from our eyes.
