26-week study. St. Jerome likened the book of Isaiah as the gospel of the Old Testament because Isaiah prophesied more about the Messiah than any other book in the Old Testament. He also described in great detail the blessings of the future kingdom of the Messiah. His coming would be as a lion bringing the day of God's wrath, but first He would come as a Savior who would die for the sins of the people. Isaiah focuses on the salvation that will come through the Messiah. Some examples include:
– Isaiah, chapter 9, where we’re told that the Messiah will one day rule in justice and righteousness;
– the 11th chapter states that during the reign of the Messiah there will be peace and safety for Israel;
– Isaiah 42:6 and 55:4, through the Messiah, Israel will be a beacon of light to all the nations.
The Messiah’s kingdom on earth (Isaiah chapter 65-66) is the goal towards which all of the Book of Isaiah points.
