Book of Isaiah Bible Study
Alternate Tuesday Nights – Beginning October 6, 2020 from 7-9PM
The book of Isaiah is one of the most prophetic books of the Old Testament. It is a book that unveils the full dimensions of God’s judgment and salvation. It reveals the character of God not only as it applies during the time Isaiah lived, but also clearly anticipates it into times of today and our future, validating the phrase, “God is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow”.
It is a book that predicts the downfall and restoration of the Southern Kingdom of Judah as well as the downfall and restoration of the world as we know it and the critical role that Jesus completes in that process.
Isaiah’s prophecies include such specific historically documented items as the Savior-child will be born of a virgin from the line of David, would perform miracles, be rejected by His own people, stand silent before His accusers, be wounded and bruised, smitten and spit upon, would pray for His accusers, be crucified with two thieves, and buried in a rich man’s tomb, all about 700 years before the birth of Jesus. Isaiah’s future prophecies also that same Savior coming back one day to set up a literal kingdom on earth and usher in a time of prosperity, peace and joy.
Dr. Warren Wiersbe, the author of Be Comforted, the study guide, says, “Isaiah is the prophet we need to hear today as he cries out God’s message above the din of world upheaval, ‘Comfort, yes, comfort My people!’” He adds, “God’s comfort does not weaken us; it strengthens us. God is not indulging us but empowering us.”
For thus said the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel, “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.” (Isaiah 30:15)
