Episode notes

Part of the beauty of the great O Antiphons is that, like the genealogies of Jesus in Matthew and Luke, they lead us chronologically through the story of redemption history to Jesus. As we sit in them, we wait with Israel for the Emmanuel, but with Israel we see pictures of God's great grace and power towards his creation and his people as the story unfolds. This week, we remember God's greatest act of redemption in the Old Testament, his bringing his people out from slavery in Egypt and to himself at Mount Sinai. We also remember the gift of the Law and look forward to the one who fulfills it! "O come, o come, Great Lord of Might"!
