Monty Simao 2014Sermon Notes

Date: 12/18/2016

Preacher: Monty Simao, pastor

Series: Advent

Key Text: Isaiah 9:1-7

SBC logo 204x204Description: The birth announcement of Jesus was not a time of joyful anticipation… but anticipation in the midst of darkness, sin, and pain. Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast as we move towards Christmas this Advent Season, we are reminded that 700 years before the birth of Christ, the prophet Isaiah described the coming Messiah in terms that sounded too good to be true:

Not only will He be King, but He will rule with justice and righteousness; He will increase the nation; He will deliver us from our enemies and bring about a peace that will never end.  And His kingly titles shall be Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, and Prince of Peace.

The Word Became Flesh [John 1:14a]

August 7, 2011

Sermon Notes

Date: 08/07/2011

Preacher: Frank Acevedo, elder

Series:  John

Key Text: John 1:14a

Description: Matthew begins with a genealogy, Mark with an OT prophecy and Luke, a personal note. But John begins with God speaking Himself into the world in the person of His own Son. The Son, identified here as the Word, is God (1:1). The Word became man (1:14) when Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary. The facts of His birth are described in the other Gospels. John states simply that the Word became flesh; that is, He became man in bodily form and in nature.
