In Isaiah 9:6, a divine utterance is given to us using four royal titles: “Wonderful Counselor,” “Mighty God,” “Everlasting Father,” and “Prince of Peace.” Names for the Messiah ponders each title and how the people understood it then, how Jesus did or did not fulfill the title, and how Christians interpret Jesus as representative of that title.
Christians have claimed from the beginning that Jesus was the Messiah foretold in the Hebrew Scriptures. In this study, best-selling author Walter Brueggemann tackles the questions: What were these expectations? and Did Jesus fulfill them?
