Christmas Marginalia

Just in time for Christmas, three new margins for you to use in your Journal Bible. Enjoy!

Isaiah 9: 2-6

As we prepare to celebrate Jesus' birth, comfort is found in these words in Isaiah and the names that would be given to Him. Substantial nouns and superlative modifiers are a beacon of hope in a dark world.

Isaiah 9:2-6 marginalia


"From Heaven Above to Earth" I Come, v. 13

Referencing Luke 2:1-8, these words penned by Martin Luther have a place in my heart compliments of my Lutheran grade school memory work! We meet God in His Word as we prepare our hearts to welcome Jesus, our Savior and friend.

From Heaven Above marginalia

Luke 2:11

We all love good news, but nothing compares to THE Good News, delivered with fanfare and light. . . and a universal pronoun: "for you."
