Listen to George Kouri's podcast: The Hope of Israel, The Great Christmas Expectation

Based upon Luke 2:8-20, the angel's announcement to humble shepherds of the birth of Christ the Lord, George Kouri proclaims the real message of Christmas.

Amazingly, the angel's announcement of Messiah's birth didn't shock these shepherds.

Could it be that they were expecting this event?

Reared as Jewish men, they were actually expecting this event to happen! In this insightful and powerful message Bishop Kouri deals with the question: "What was the Christmas expectation of the people at the time of Christ's birth in Bethlehem?"

One of the greatest authentications that Jesus is the Christ, the promised Messiah, is that what happened that night was exactly what the shepherds expected to happen. God had revealed to Daniel the prophet that during the time of the Roman Empire the Messiah would come. Later God revealed to Daniel the exact time that the Messiah would come. As a result the entire Jewish world was filled with expectation! They knew what the prophets had promised.

What did the prophets promise? What were the people expecting? What was the "Hope of Israel"? Why is it important to us today? It is important because the Hope of Israel in the first century has now become the Hope of the Church of Jesus Christ in our century !
