About the Curriculum
“Behold, days are coming.” Advent is a time when we look backward and forward at the same time. We spend time looking back to when Jesus was born while looking forward to the day we celebrate His birth. We take time each day (with some of us starting our celebrations in October and some waiting until December) to further our excitement and our expectation. It continues to build with each coming day until, at last, Christmas morning is here, and we are rejoicing in the truth that Jesus, God’s only Son, has come to Earth as our savior. In Jeremiah, the Lord says, “Behold, days are coming…when I will fulfill the good word which I have spoken concerning the house of Israel and the house of Judah. In those days and at that time I will make a righteous Branch of David sprout; and He shall execute justice and righteousness on the earth” (Jer. 33:14-15).
