The text is based on the biblical prophecy from Isaiah 7:14:

...the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel (ESV).
The name Emmanuel literally means "God with us." God gave Jesus to mankind as the first Christmas present
Hanging out with mankind was God's idea from the beginning. The Bible says that God walked with Adam and Eve in the cool of the day in the Garden of Eden. The Father sent Jesus because he wanted to renew that kind of intimate fellowship with us.

During the Christmas season we often sing the classic hymn, "O Come, O Come Emmanuel," but have you ever thought about what this familiar song means?
