    Book Of Isaiah Essay

    • 1166 Words
    • 5 Pages

    According to Harris’ Exploring the Bible, “...the Book of Isaiah represents and incorporates the three principal themes or concerns of Israel’s prophets: warnings of divine judgement, promises of forgiveness and reconciliation, and responsibilities of restoration” (163). However, what sets the book of Isaiah apart from the other prophet books is that it is actually compiled of three different prophets. These three prophets correspond with different periods of Judean history which take place before, during, and after the exile. While most readers simply interpret Isaiah for the words on the pages of the Bible, the historical framework of prophecies in Isaiah should be studied when reading these oracles because the background becomes critical…

    Isaiah 53 Analysis

    • 1038 Words
    • 5 Pages

    The passage of Isaiah 53 (4-8), for many centuries has been summed up as a poetic song in which the prophet Isaiah depicted the climatic period of world history in which the coming Messiah will arrive. In today’s culture this view is again reoriented in that many Christians alone see this passage to be a prophecy of the ministry in which Jesus Christ will walk. When looking into the passage, Christians see the ‘servant’ as Jesus, and his suffering for our sins, and the sacrifice he made for us.…

He lived in Jerusalem, and was called upon to deliver God’s message during the Assyrian crisis (Hays, 2010, p. 96). Isaiah delivered words of confrontation, exhortation, and warning. This made Isaiah unpopular among the people (Radmacher, Allen & House, 2007, p. 1037). Isaiah’s message was delivered during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, Hezekiah, and all the kings of Judah…

    The Syro-Ephraimitic War occurred in the eighth century B.C.E. This was of heavy concern for Ahaz because it presented a clear and present danger to his kingdom from attack by Syria and Israel (Tullock & McEntire, 2012). Isaiah’s advice for Ahaz was to pay no attention to these threats. “Instead, he counseled, “Take heed, be quiet, do not fear,” for the little tyrants threatening him would soon vanish” (Tullock & McEntire, 2012, p. 216). Isaiah tells King Ahaz that he must ask God for a…
