Studies In Isaiah
The second half of Isaiah is often divided into three main sections: 40-48, 49-57, 58-66. These chapters contain some of the best loved portions of Scripture in the Canon, but it also contains some difficult material. In summary, God announces his great plan of salvation. We see the terrible challenges faced by God because of man’s idolatry. Then the mysterious figure of the Servant is introduced. We learn of His character and His great work. The New Testament helps us distinguish between the fact that the Saviour has come and that He will come. Finally, we catch a glimpse of the new Heaven and the new Earth.
