Prepare the Way

Second Sunday in Advent, Year B, Old Testament

Scripture: Isaiah 40:1-11

Our scripture comes from the book of Isaiah. Many times we associate Isaiah’s prophecies with the coming of the Messiah. In fact, the imagery of Isaiah 40 has inspired the creation of many different artistic and cultural works. However, it’s important for us to remember that these words were written to God’s people long before they knew the Messiah would ever come. Isaiah’s words of comfort and peace were written to God’s people while they were facing the destruction and pain that came from the Babylonian exile.
