Comfort, comfort my people, says your God.   Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the  Lord ’s hand double for all her sins.    A voice of one calling: “In the wilderness prepare the way for the  Lord ; make straight in the desert a highway for our God.    Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.    And the glory of the  Lord  will be revealed, and all people will see it together. For the mouth of the  Lord  has spoken.”   

Isaiah 40:1-5

1. What does this say about Jesus?

2. What is the hope described?

3. What is revealed in Jesus?
