OS-1-173

Powerful advocate for social justice, advisor to kings – Isaiah of Jerusalem embodied the notion of “speaking truth to power.” His words are timeless, but they were spoken in a particular time and place, for the purpose of bringing about change in the world Isaiah saw around him, a world teetering on the edge of disaster, both moral and political.

From his vision of God to his prophetic announcement of Immanuel, from his interpretation of God’s covenant with David to his political counsel, Isaiah is a central text for biblical interpreters past and present. Learn about the prophet and his prophecies, the text and its time, in this in-depth study of one of the Bible’s most beloved books.
