The advent of Christ and childlikeness

From the December 2022 issue of The Christian Science Journal

A powerful prophetic vision is conveyed in these words from the Bible: “The wolf also shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid; and the calf and the young lion and the fatling together; and a little child shall lead them” ( Isaiah 11:6 ). The “little child” is associated with the advent of Christ, the expected Messiah, which was fulfilled in the birth of Jesus.
