The Prophecy of Isaiah

Course Description: In the book of Isaiah God revealed His plan for Israel and the world from the 8th century BC to the coming of Christ and the creation of the new heavens and new earth. He also assured the completion of this plan by demonstrating His control over history. Luke and Acts is an account of the fulfillment of Isaiah 40-55. Hence without Isaiah we may misunderstand Christian salvation and mission.

By studying Isaiah in its historical, literary and theological contexts this course seeks to make plain the meaning of the prophecies, which are mostly expressed in poetry. Thus much attention is given to how to interpret poetic prophecies. The prophetic books of Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel will also be briefly considered in order to present God's plan for world redemption more completely.
