Isaiah 1:1 – Isaiah 13:22

The book of Isaiah is a long and complex writing.  Today’s section of scripture begins the first 13 chapters of the total 66 chapters of Isaiah.  In this section, much of the prophet’s words are directed toward the people of Judah.  The Lord is speaking through Isaiah to bring judgment on the people of Judah for the way they’ve been acting and their need to turn back to the Lord.

To me, the most important parts of this section of scripture are the description of heaven that Isaiah recounted in chapter six and the verses that begin to point directly to the coming Savior.  Much of these passages foretell the coming King, Jesus Christ.  Check out: Isa. 7:14-16, Isa. 9:2, Isa. 9:6-7, Isa. 11:1-5, Isa. 11:10-12.
