Course Overview

An in-depth study of the book of Isaiah, a prophet whose ministry spanned approximately 50 years (740-690 BC). The study explores Isaiah’s life and ministry, including his prophecies about his generation, about the future of God’s people, and about the Messiah, God’s anointed one, who would accomplish God’s plan of salvation for a sinful world. This study will be most beneficial if students secure a copy of Encountering the Book of Isaiah: A Historical and Theological Survey (Bryan Beyer; Baker Academic, 2007) to use alongside the Bible and the narrated PowerPoint talks.
