Making God LORD Again; Isaiah 28-29
Season 7, Episode 5 • 07-Jul-2021
The second of five woes is aimed at Jerusalem. In Isaiah 29:1, the Bible says: “Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt…” Many scholars point out that the meaning of the word Ariel in Hebrew is ‘lion of God’ – portraying a strong city. It is relevant that the Hebrew word Ariel sounds like the Hebrew word for ‘altar’ or ‘hearth’. This is significant because the location of the altar of burnt offering was the Jerusalem Temple. Though the altar of the Temple was made to offer joyful sacrifices in repentance, the city itself will now burn as a sacrifice on the altar. Our reading covers a time of great difficulty and failure for Jerusalem. During Isaiah’s own life the Assyrians would surround Jerusalem, threatening its very existence. But God was merciful. King Hezekiah prayed for the people, and God delivered the city!

A Capable Saviour; Isaiah 33-35
Isaiah 33 is a dramatic portrayal of judgment and redemption. It contains a prayer in a time of deep distress. For His people, God was going to move on their behalf, despite their great failure. When God and His ways are ignored, sin compounds on sin. Yet, when we repent, God will enact a plan of...
The Servant of the LORD; Isaiah 41-42
Amazingly, the works of Jesus Christ are written in the book of Isaiah, chapter 42. Seven hundred years before Christ would walk the earth, God had the prophet record His plans. It is interesting that God proclaims His work to us in certain ways. God is always present, even through the bad decisi...
