This chapter continues the prophesy of the Servant and salvation.

...continue reading "Isaiah 54"

The Lord calls out to the Coastlands (Islands/the nations) to listen to His case against them in silence and then to speak their case, if they have one. (Spoiler alert...they don't.)

...continue reading "Isaiah 41"

We now enter a new section of Isaiah. Most commentators distinguish two "halves" of the book. The dire prophetic judgements of the "Old Testament" half, with the tragic end of Israel and much of Judah by the Assyrians, and the more hopefully, Messianic, "New Testament" half in which Isaiah has amazingly accurate prophesies regarding Babylon. This second second begin with chapter 40.

...continue reading "Isaiah 40"

This is the second of three events we see in the "historical interlude" in the middle of the book of Isaiah, all related to King Hezekiah. These are cross-referenced in II Kings 20 and II Chronicles 32.

...continue reading "Isaiah 38"

This is a continuation of the "historical interlude" from the reign of Hezekiah, as found in II Kings and cross-referenced in II Chronicles.

...continue reading "Isaiah 37"

Hosea has a wife and three kids that all tell the tales of an Israel who has forsaken God and God has disowned, while still giving His longsuffering hope for the future.

...continue reading "Hosea 2 (Israel)"

Isaiah foreseeing judgment against the nations continues with Ethiopia in Chapter 18.

...continue reading "Isaiah 18 (Ethiopia)"

Many of these may be similar to the I King stories, but with more information about Judah's story. While much of this may have been touched on previously, this is new reading for me in II Chronicles.

...continue reading "II Chronicles: All Things Elijah, Ahab, and Jehoshaphat (Chs. 17-20)"

Starting with the sons of Rehoboam and Jeroboam, we'll see the kingdoms further division and their relationships with the Lord. This is briefer summary, since I have recently covered these chapters.
