Isaiah 40-66: Prophet of restoration
It looked like the end of nationhood for God’s people as they faced a punishment they most surely deserved. But Isaiah saw beyond Judah’s captivity by the Babylonians to a time of remarkable restoration. As part of this, they would rediscover God’s purpose for them – to be His servant; a destiny that would in due course be enshrined in one Man, Jesus of Nazareth, the Messiah and Savious of the world.
This Bible study helps us to understand Isaiah’s powerful message: that God is a holy God who cannot ignore sin, but One who also displays amazing grace and mercy, and a longing to enjoy restored relationship with us.
Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
