Isaiah says that a special baby will be born


Isaiah was a man who lived about 700 years before Jesus was born.

Isaiah wrote a book.

God helped Isaiah to write his book.

The book was about what God would do in the future.

In his book Isaiah wrote:


God will do something special to help you believe.

A virgin will become pregnant.

She will have a baby boy.

The baby’s name will be Immanuel.

This name means ‘God is with us’.


This child will be born for our good.

This baby boy will be sent to help us.

He will rule the world.

His name will be ‘Wonderful Counsellor’.

His other name will be ‘Mighty God’.

His other name will be ‘Everlasting Father’.

His other name will be ‘Prince of Peace’.

All these names show how special this boy will be.



Isaiah 7:14

Isaiah 9:6
