The prophecy of Isaiah was written prior to the judgment and exile of Israel and Judah and the hands of the Assyrians and Babylonians. It is the reflection of the heart of a loving God who has been deeply hurt by the rebellion of His people. It is the heart cry of a loving husband spurned by an adulterous wife. It is also, however, a prophecy of hope for a nation steeped in sin and rebellion. It's prophecies of the Messiah who was to come are among the best known a loved in all of Scripture.
Isaiah is a prophesy who from the very beginning of his ministry was told that the people to whom he preached would not listen to him. For over sixty years, the prophet persevered in his ministry speaking the word of God to a spiritually deaf people. He was uncompromising in his message. God used him not only in Israel and Judah but also to communicate His
purpose for many of the surrounding nations.
The book speaks to our society as well. It reveals a holy and glorious God whose heart breaks by our rebellion and who longs to reach out to us and restore us to Himself. This commentary examines each section of the book of Isaiah. Each chapter is concluded with some questions to consider and some points for prayer to help the reader apply the truth to his or her personal life.
