Advent Hope

Advent comes from a Latin word meaning “coming” or “arrival.”  The historical church has used the theme of Advent to prepare Christians to celebrate the coming of Jesus. The First Advent to the birth of Christ, the incarnation of God with us. The Second Advent refers to Christ’s return for us. This lesson focuses on the prologue of John’s Gospel, particularly John 1:1-5 that Christ, the Word, not only formed all things in creation (in the beginning) but re-created  our lives through His redeeming sacrifice on our behalf.
