Isaiah Bible Study

The Disciples group elected to study the book of Isaiah next—we are just in the mood for one of the prophets.

While Isaiah’s vision and the specific time and place of his ministry (750-700 BC in Jerusalem), we will be able to see foreshadowing of the birth and life of Christ and even apply elements of this text to our own present days.

Let’s hold up one of the greatest images in Isaiah as it occurs quite early in the text: “Come let us ascend the  mountain of the Lord… he will judge between the nations and he will decide for many peoples. And they shall beat their weapons into ploughs and their curved swords into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift a sword against nation nor will they learn war anymore.”

My Word Biblical Commentary says, “Yahweh’s purpose has been a part of Israel’s revealed tradition throughout. Abraham was called to be a blessing to all the families of the earth (Gen 12:3b). Israel was called to be a ‘kingdom of priests’ (Exod 19:6). … What all nations learn when they flow to the summit of the mountain of Yahweh will eliminate war among them. The age of peace will come.”

The role of God’s people in God’s city is what the rest of the book explains. “Righteousness and justice have already been shown to be non-negotiable requirements. Willingness and obedience have been named as needed qualities. Faith, patience, and humility will be among the virtues taught to the servants of Yahweh.”

“This great image contains nothing of political dominance or of nationalism. The appeal of God’s city is religious and universal.”

This is a vision that we all need, and I am already liking this next study. Plan to join us in September.
