Daytime Bible Study - Isaiah
Tuesday morning Bible study, 10 weeks
Often referred to as the fifth gospel, the book of the prophet Isaiah has more to say about Israel’s coming Messiah than any other Old Testament book. Brilliant, courageous, and uncompromising, this prophet declared that the year of the LORD had come, and God’s people needed to either step up or stand down. Indeed, when Isaiah spoke, kings trembled.
However, too often, when Isaiah speaks today, God’s people have trouble hearing. Why? We often miss the larger context. In "The Epic of Eden: Isaiah," Dr. Sandra Richter takes participants back to the eighth century BCE. This ten-week study explains Israel’s religion and economy, explores the definition and role of the prophets, and helps us apply the message of this great champion of the faith to our lives today.
