Course Description


Isaiah wrestles with the realities of people who are not convicted by the truth but actually hardened by it and a God whose actions sometimes seem unintelligible, or, even worse, who appears to be absent.

Yet Isaiah penetrates beyond these experiences to see a greater reality.

Isaiah portrays God’s rule over history and his capacity to take the worst of human actions and use them for good. He declares the truth that even in the darkest hours, the Holy One of Israel is infinitely trustworthy.

The Isaiah course, featuring lessons by Old Testament scholar John Oswalt, leads you through the book of Isaiah in engaging and challenging units. Each unit helps bring the meaning of Isaiah into the twenty-first century. As Oswalt works his way through the book passage-by-passage, he comments on the text itself and then explores issues in Israel’s culture and in ours that help us understand the meaning of each passage.

This course on Isaiah offers you the chance to learn about one of the Bible's most important books from one of today's premier Old Testament scholars.
