Everlasting Father

The Bible tells us that in “the fullness of time God sent forth His Son,” but even before the birth of Jesus, the great Advent Conspiracy had long been underway. One of the aliases the Prophet Isaiah gave Jesus was the “Everlasting Father.” Jewish and Christian scholars have debated this name for centuries. Isaiah was literally calling Jesus the “Father of Eternity.” Join us for part three of Alias where we will learn how Jesus came to give us the gift of eternity.
