The book of Isaiah, chapters 40 through 55, is especially rich in insights into the significance of Jesus Christ. These chapters of Isaiah are particularly helpful for grasping how Jesus speaks to us in our discouragement, perhaps because they were originally addressed to people in very discouraging circumstances. The message that God spoke through Isaiah—the message that helps us better understand Jesus—comes to us as a series of prophecies directed to Israelites more than twenty-five centuries ago. Build a Highway for God will help you understand what Isaiah's words meant to his original audience so that you can grasp what they mean for us today. Six sessions include questions for discussion and application, commentary and explanations, quotes and prayer helps along with the text to be studied individually or with a group. Group sessions take about one and a half hours.
The book of Isaiah contains some of the most beautiful prophetic verses in the Old Testament, but what is its real purpose? In Isaiah 40-55: Build a Highway for God, the greatest of prophets proclaims the coming deliverance of God's people. Author Kevin Perrotta explains how the prophet's message can change our lives today.
