What can the Old Testament teach us about how to live the gospel in our own day? What relationships can we see between our challenges and those face by the children of Israel in ancient times? Why do we need to understand the poetry and promises of Isaiah - and how can we learn to do that?
This volume is the second in a two,volume commentary on the Old Testament, adding to the acclaimed Verse by Verse series by scripture scholars D. Kelly Ogden and Andrew C. Skinner.
Here we learn how to discover our Savior, Jesus Christ, in the scriptures of ancient Israel. Brought to life are the stories of Esther, Job, Daniel, Jonah, and others in ways that connect our lives with theirs. And the authors explore with us the book of Isaiah, enabling us to grasp better than ever the treasures of prophecy and poetry of the great seer who foresaw Jesus Christ, our own day, and the millennial era. We gain insights into the blessings of offering sacrifice and keeping covenants. Quotations from latter,day prophets and apostles enhance these doctrinal discussions to help us liken the scriptures of ancient Israel unto ourselves.
This commentary offers soul,satisfying enrichment to our study of the Old Testament, whose timeless truths testify that the Lord is "the same yesterday, today, and forever. "
