It’s one thing to acknowledge that Christmas is about a child being born in Bethlehem, but it’s quite another to ask questions like, “Who was this child?” and “What is He like?” In this Advent sermon, David Platt identifies twenty biblical characteristics of Jesus based on the majestic picture we see in Revelation 1:9–20. The child born in Bethlehem is fully human, but He is also fully divine and the Sovereign Lord of all.
David Platt serves as pastor at McLean Bible Church in Washington, D.C. He is the founder and president of Radical. He is the author of several books, including Radical, Radical Together, Follow Me, and Counter Culture.
