Isaiah has been described as the fifth Gospel writer. Matthew, Mark, Luke, John, and the prophet Isaiah. His pomes and prophecies about the coming messiah and the coming city of peace were penned hundreds of years before the coming of Jesus and yet, Jesus uses the very text of Isaiah for his first sermon! Other NT writers quote, paraphrase, or allude to Isaiah, no less than 411 times. What made his prophecy so popular? This fall, in Table Groups, and as we worship in House Churches and at the Silk Mill, we’ll be centered around the ancient texts of Isaiah. From “For unto us a child is born,” to “surely he has borne our grief and carried our sorrows….” we’ll dive head first into the beautiful and evocative poetry of Isaiah for the purpose of understanding and living more like the Messiah Isaiah himself longed to see!
