Isaiah: God’s Good News for Transforming the World
Someone has said that Isaiah is the ‘Romans’ of the OT; that is, Isaiah, like Romans, presents us the great good news of God’s salvation in all its glory. Others have said that Isaiah is like the whole Bible in one book, because the book of Isaiah spans from creation to new creation. The book is bookended with references to the heavens and the earth and a new heavens and a new earth, and in between it’s all about the gospel story of God saving his people through judgment for the transformation of the world.
And as Isaiah tells this grand story of the gospel from creation to new creation, he does so in pictures. Isaiah is a prophet, but he is also a painter, an artist — because his book is full of pictures/images as he explains the gospel to us. So come join us as we delve into the OT Gospel of Isaiah and see the glory of God displayed in pictures that will capture our minds and hearts.
