      • Both David and Jesus were born in Bethlehem

        • The Character of His reign

            • Isaiah 1:3 – They only exist where God is present
            • FEAR of the Lord means to rule out of obedience to please God
          • The Shoot of Jesse – concerned with Right
            • Not appearance
            • Not self-benefit
            • Not social status
          • How?
            • Righteousness and faithfulness at the heart of His existence
          • The result of His Leadership
            • Peace
            • True knowledge
