The Saturday Morning Men’s Bible Study is beginning a dive into the Old Testament Prophetic book of Isaiah. Written 700 years before the birth of Christ, Isaiah is quoted (or alluded to) in the Gospels approximately 21 times, 25 times in Paul’s letters, 6 times in 1 Peter, 5 times in Acts, 4 times in Revelation, and once in Hebrews. Isaiah 53 provides the clearest prophecy of the Suffering Servant, Christ Jesus. In this chapter we read
“Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.”
Because of this prophecy and dozens more within Isaiah, it is most definitely an Old Testament book worth studying and knowing well. Sixty-six chapters in all, which is why we are calling this Isaiah’s Greatest Hits. We will look at the entire book, but spend particularly close attention to those sections that provide us with a clear path to our Savior Jesus. And since it talks so much about Jesus, we will find ourselves repeatedly jumping into the New Testament to see how Isaiah’s prophecies were all fulfilled.
Join us! We’d love to have you take a seat around the table with our growing group. The coffee is hot, the donuts are unhealthy, and the fellowship is genuine! 7 a.m. every Saturday in the Gathering Room, led by Rick Adams
