recognizing Emmanuel
Emmanuel—God with us—is an idea often packed away with the Christmas decorations. It's a concept we fail to hold onto throughout the year. It's a reality we struggle to comprehend. For many, it's a truth that simply cannot be seen and isn't believed.

The New Testament gospels record a number of people who recognized Jesus as something more. In Him they caught a glimpse of the divine. They saw something out of this world. They experienced the presence of God.

Every year, Christmas to Easter, our Sunday focus is the life of Christ.

This year we examine those who recognized the divine in the person Jesus from Nazareth. We begin with an old woman and an old man in the Jerusalem temple who recognized Jesus' identity when He was just forty days old. We'll conclude with the apostle who finally recognized the risen Jesus as "My Lord and my God." In between we will explore the many people recorded in the books of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John who had "eyes to see" or "ears to hear" God with us.
