Product Description

One of the greatest expressions of worship and adoration was written by George Handel. He called his oratorio Messiah. During the Christmas season we often hear it sung or played but many listeners do not realize that the entire text of the musical is drawn from Scripture - and it includes many of the Old Testament passages that shaped Israel's hope for their Redeemer.

The eight studies in The Messiah: The Texts Behind Handel's Masterpiece will deepen your understanding of the biblical passages about the coming of the Messiah and if done near the time of Advent or Easter, will prepare you for the season. Any time of the year, these studies will draw you closer to Jesus in adoration and appreciation. Each session's study include a Scripure Reference for you to read prior to the study, discussion and personal reflection questions, and commentary notes. Enhance your enjoyment by playing a recording of significant sections of the Messiah as part of your Bible study.

Publisher's Description

Prophets prophesied about him. Angels and shepherds rejoiced at his birth. Friends cried for joy at his resurrection. And we still celebrate him today. He is Jesus, the Messiah. Perfect for Advent or Lent, this study guide explores some of the key passages in the Old Testament about the Messiah and their completion in the life and saving work of Jesus. These passages have had a profound effect on the imagination and worship of Christians for two thousand years, leading George Frederic Handel to write one of the greatest expressions of worship and adoration—his oratorio, the Messiah. We hear parts of it sung every year during the Christmas season, but what many listeners fail to realize is that the entire text of Handel's Messiah is drawn from Scripture—and many of the Old Testament passages that shaped Israel's hope for their Redeemer are included in that text. This guide leads you through Scripture passages used in Handel's work that highlight who Jesus is and what he came to do. It might change the way you listen to the Messiah. Even more, it might change the way you live.
