John Whitcomb: December 18, 2017

Dr. John Whitcomb amplifies the most appealing voice of Christmas in this week’s edition of “Encounter God’s Truth.”

That voice, of course, is the voice of the one true Messiah—the Anointed One, Jesus Christ! The truth it conveyed was first whispered by the prophet Isaiah, who spoke of the Messiah and His message. Dr. Whitcomb shows how this voice flows like a balm over all the troubled people who come to Him. Will you listen and respond this Christmas season? Following the message, host Wayne Shepherd asks Dr. Whitcomb why more of the Jewish people did not accept Jesus when they heard His appealing voice in first-century Israel. This is the third installment in our four-part “Voices of the Christmas Prophets” series, and we trust it will be of real help to many who are seeking the wisdom and peace of our Lord during this important time of the year. God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end—and it is our privilege to bring it to you every week through “Encounter God’s Truth.”
