Christmas Verses – The First Coming #4

Isaiah 40: 3 NIV

A voice of one calling: “In the desert prepare the way for the Lord: make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God.”

We need to include John the Baptist in our Christmas verses. This verse in Isaiah is repeated the most in the gospels about John.  According to Matthew 17: 11-13 John was the fulfillment of this verse and Malachi 3:1. It would seem that the teachers of the Law started the idea that these verses speak of Elijah.  Remember, they were thinking of just an earthly kingdom and a military leader.
