Isaiah 9, the people walking in darkness, a child is born, a Son is given, the arrogance of Israel.

 

 

The Veggie Tales has a hilarious recounting of how Gideon defeated the Midians, not always biblically correct, but good for children. The correct account is found in Judges 6 and 7.

Child: Shows the humanity of Christ

Son, shows the deity of Christ

It also shows the unity of God, Father, Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counselor, three aspects of God, three in one, the triune God, the Trinity.

 

There is one more instance of El Gibbor in the Old Testament. In Jeremiah 32:18 it says: “Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, (El Gibbor) YHWH of hosts, is his name,”

This time there is no question that El Gibbor is Jehova himself.
It is also a good time to recollect the most common names of God.

The Annunciation in Luke 1 also states that Jesus will be the Son of God, indirectly God himself coming to earth as a child.

 

Jeremiah 9:10 has been quoted by politicians as a message of resilience and hope. This message was scribbled by President Obama in 2012 on a building near Ground Zero. Other Politicians have quoted Jer 9:10. John Edwards quoted it directly on the third anniversary of 9/11, not realizing that the message is not one of hope, but of utter arrogance.
