God Restoring the World
A study through the book of Isaiah.
March 11th, 2018
We return this week to our series “God Restoring the World”, as we make our way through the book of Isaiah. Isaiah means- “The salvation of Jehovah” and is a book detailing how God intends to put all to right. It’s a book that has been called “The Gospel according to Isaiah” and “the 5th Gospel”, because it seems to be broken up in a similar manner to the larger Scriptures, of which it is itself of course a part. Also similar, the first roughly two thirds of the book focus on God’s justice and His judgment toward His wayward people, while the latter third details a hopeful plan for the redemption for His people through the coming and intervention of His “Servant”, whom we know to be our Lord Jesus Christ.
We begin by summarizing a section of four chapters of judgment, chapters 13-16, that are the first chunk of a larger set of judgments against Judah’s enemies. These chapter’s (13-23) are known as the prophetic “burdens” of Isaiah, and in this first section there are oracles against Babylon, Assyria, Philistia, and Moab.
