Suckling of El Shaddai

Author's Note: I wrote it as an advent gift to Jesus, and for instruction for my children about the Incarnate One! Each line is accompanied by a verse from both the Old and New Testament to show that the character, accomplishments and Divine nature of Christ are the center of biblical revelation and the Yes and Amen of all prophecies. It has 50 lines so that two lines per day, equalling 4 Scriptures, could be studied each day of Advent (for those who follow that).
