In this series, we will be looking at some of the great texts of Christian Scripture—texts that seem to capture the whole gospel in short compass—texts that God has used down through the ages to do His people good. This would be an excellent series for those new to Christianity or for those searching for the essence of the Christian message.
BOOK OF ISAIAH
Writing in the 8th century BC, Isaiah writes to a people desperately trying to find a political answer to the Assyria problem. But Assyria isn't their big problem. God is. Isaiah writes calling them back to God. As he does, he foretells the coming of a great hero, a servant king who will bring true and lasting salvation for His people.
