The Book of Isaiah Day 50


Hello everyone. Today I would like to do a little overview of Isaiah. It was written by Isaiah the prophet around 8 centuries before the Jesus was born. His name means “salvation of the LORD”. He was considered the greatest writing prophet. Nowhere in the Old Testament is grace more evident than in this book of prophesy. Isaiah is also the most comprehensive in range. Let’s look at one way to break down the book.

1. Prophesies concerning Judah 1:1-12:6

2. Prophecies concerning the Nations chapter 13-27:13

3. Prophetic warnings concerning Ephraim and Judah 28:1-35:10

4. Sennacherib’s Invasions and Hezekiah’s illness 36:1-39:8

5. The Greatness of God 40:1-48:22

6. The Suffering Servant of the LORD 49:1-57:21

7. Exhortations and Prophecies 58:1-66:24

My favorite, I love reading about the greatness of God He is an amazing God. Remember at the beginning I said one of the things we would see by reading the whole Bible together was God’s character? This book tells us a lot about the character of God. He sent his one and only Son for us. He shows great compassion especially since we don’t deserve it!

My favorite scripture that summarizes the entire book is found in chapter 64:8

But now, O Lord, you are our Father; we are the clay, and you are our potter; we are all the work of your hand.

Isaiah 64:8 (ESV)

To that I say AMEN! Till tomorrow.

Blessings,

Jill
