The Book of Isaiah
Tue, 20 February 2018
The Book of Isaiah speaks strongly to the situations in which it arose, but has also spoken in subsequent centuries. Christians have found within it prophecies pointing to the birth and death of Christ, and passages are read through Advent, Christmas, and Holy Week. It is therefore not surprising that it is sometimes referred to as the 'Fifth Gospel'. More recently, scholars have identified different parts to the book and even different 'Isaiahs'. All agree that it contains some of the most profound imagery of the Bible.
This course aims to open up some of these aspects of this rich book. It is particularly geared to those who have a grounding in the Old Testament through previous study, and will include elements of study preparation.
