Christmas with Isaiah
The book of Isaiah was written by the prophet Isaiah (1:1) over seven hundred years before the first coming of Jesus, the Savior.
It represents a summary of the entire Bible. The Bible has sixty six books; Isaiah has sixty-six chapters. The Old Testament has thirty-nine books; the first section of Isaiah has thirty-nine chapters. The New Testament has twenty-seven books; the last section of Isaiah has twenty-seven chapters. The Old Testament focuses on sin and judgment as does Isaiah 1-39. The New Testament focuses on salvation and hope, as does Isaiah 40-66. Isaiah predicts the ministry of John the Baptist (40:3). The New Testament fulfills this prediction (Matthew 3:1-2).
Isaiah is called the “Fifth Gospel” because the New Testament use of the word “gospel”, which means good news, is rooted in Isaiah’s use of it. Against the backdrop of God’s judgment, Isaiah proclaims the good news of the Savior.
“O Zion, You who bring good tidings, Get up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, You who bring good tidings, Lift up your voice with strength, Lift it up, be not afraid; Say to the cities of Judah, “Behold your God!” – Isaiah 40:9
“Are the feet of him who brings good news, Who proclaims peace, Who brings glad tidings of good things, Who proclaims salvation, Who says to Zion, “Your God reigns!” – Isaiah 52:9
This great plan is fulfilled through “a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” – Luke 2:10-11
