Publisher's Summary

The Hebrew Scriptures contain three major figures: the priest, the prophet and the king. The priest stands between the people and God, and he speaks to God on behalf of the people; the prophet stands between God and the people, and he speaks to the people on behalf of God; and the king represents God in the affairs of the nation.

Prophets are emphatically not seers who gaze into the future and predict far-off events; they are God’s spokesmen who always speak into their own historical context. Sometimes what they say may foreshadow messianic or “end time” events, but they always have an immediate historical reference.

Understanding a prophet’s historical context is essential to understanding his message. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy in this dazzling exposition of Isaiah, the first of the major prophets.

Prophetic mystery solved

As always, Dr. Creasy takes a complex book of scripture and makes it accessible to the listener through context of its time and through the literary design of the writing. In a scholarly yet perfectly understandable introduction, he informs us how to understand prophetic writing at the primary level of the historical context of the day, and also the prophetic (future) message between the lines, often referring to the coming Messiah. Just that much information clarified my former confusion over what has always been mysterious. The four "Suffering Servant songs" in the final third of the book have never been so full of meaning and emotion until this reading. For anyone looking to gain understanding of Biblical scriptures, this series is the best I have ever found.

Who really crucified Christ?

Any additional comments?

The through the Bible teachings by Dr Creasey has been awesome. And the study on Isaiah is more of the same great teaching. Dr Creasey gives a heart felt teaching about 2/3 of the way through Isaiah on who really crucified Jesus. That is one of the best lessons I've heard from him so far.

If you are a student of the Bible, the entire series is highly recommended.

Wow, wow, wow...wow!

I'll say it again, "WOW!" Isaiah has never been clearer than with Dr. Creasy's reading. He does an incredible job explaining the meanings, tying in Revelation and other books of the New Testament, and bringing in historical context especially with Cyrus. Bravo!
