Lecture 2, Infancy Hymns:
Throughout the Old Testament, God’s major redemptive acts were celebrated in song. The Song of Moses in Exodus 15 celebrated the redemption of Israel from Egypt. The Song of Deborah in Judges 5 celebrated the defeat of the Canaanites. These and other songs are found throughout Israel’s history—many in the book of Psalms. All of these earlier redemptive acts, however, paled in comparison to the incarnation of the Son. In this lecture, Dr. R.C. Sproul looks at three songs that celebrated the coming of the Messiah.
