Christmas 2013 - Antiphon 4
In some parts of the church, they use as part of their Christmas worship, these seven O antiphons. Each of them addresses Jesus Christ using a Messianic title drawn from Old Testament prophecy.
Our Old Testament readings are Isaiah 9:6 & Isaiah 22:21-22
Isaiah 9:6For a child is born to us, a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called:
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Isaiah 22:21-22 - I will give him the key to the house of David—the highest position in the royal court. When he opens doors, no one will be able to close them; when he closes doors, no one will be able to open them.
Our New Testament reading is Revelation 3:21-22
Revelation 3:21-22 - Here I am! Jesus! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat down with my Father on his throne.
