Jesus' birth was foretold by the prophet Isaiah centuries before He was born. But, it was God's plan all along that He would come. Why did He come to the world?
Jesus left all of the glories of heaven and came to the Earth as a tiny fragile human baby to save us!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him." John 3:16
