Isaiah: The Promise of the Messiah (MacArthur Bible Studies) (Paperback)
Isaiah's ministry as a prophet--during the period of the divided kingdom--spanned the reigns of four Judean kings. He condemned the empty ritualism of his day and the idolatry into which the people had fallen. He foresaw the coming Babylonian captivity, and some of his prophecies were even fulfilled in his lifetime, but the literal fulfillment of his prophecies concerning Christ's first coming have given Isaiah's words their strongest vindication--and the further assurance in the prophecies of Christ's second coming.
In this study, pastor John MacArthur will guide you through an in-depth look at the historical backdrop to the book of Isaiah, continuing through the different prophecies and the teachings about the grace of God. Studies include close-up examinations of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, as well as careful considerations of doctrinal themes such as the "Redemption of Israel" and "The Future Glory of God's People."
