Notes on the Sermon: Christ: The Hope of the World and God’s Promise Fulfilled in Jesus
Join Captain Rob Westwood-Payne as he takes us on a fascinating exploration of the significance behind names, especially focusing on the biblical context.

Key Points Discussed:

- Insight into the name Jesus as given by the angel Gabriel in the New Testament, revealing the dual nature of Christ’s humanity and divinity.
- The power of the name Jesusthe Hope of the World, in healing, deliverance, and the forgiveness of sins, fulfilling Isaiah’s prophecy and establishing his role as the Son of God and Messiah.
- Gabriel’s proclamation of Jesus’ kingship, his descent from the lineage of David, and his destined governance over God’s kingdom, indicating the profound political and theological impact of his birth.
- The necessity of a savior and the importance of a personal relationship with God through abiding in Jesus Christ.
