ADVENT OF THE SAVIOUR
A Commentary on the Infancy Narratives of Jesus
Author: Stephen J. Binz
As an extension of Israel's longing for the Messiah, the infancy accounts serve as overtures to the writings of the evangelists, and stand as bridges connecting the Old and New Testaments. Advent of the Saviour focuses on this connection of past to present so that we may deepen our longing for the Messiah's coming again and ask God in our own day to be Emmanuel, "God with us."
The infancy narratives of Matthew and Luke express the basic truths about the divine and human mystery of Jesus Christ. Advent of the Saviour reminds us that it is through these truths that we are called to move from longing for our Savior to hope in his coming again.

2. The truth of the Word of God, emphasizing the message about God and his project of salvation

Mines the Resurrection Narrative of John's gospel as a rich resource for understanding and developing Christian spirituality.
