Avraham Gileadi

Avraham Gileadi is a Hebrew scholar and literary analyst specializing in the Book of Isaiah. He was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ in 1972 in the Pool of Siloam after having read the Book of Mormon, which he found in a kibbutz library. He received academic degrees from Brigham Young University: a B.A. in University Studies, a M.A. in Ancient Scripture, and a Ph.D. in Ancient Studies with Hugh Nibley as chair. During his academic years, Gileadi taught Hebrew, Religion courses, and an Honors Philosophy class in the literary analysis of the Book of Isaiah. Sponsored by the Hebraeus Foundation (est. 1990), Avraham Gileadi has lectured widely, given seminars and firesides, and published many books on the Book of Isaiah and related subjects that teach Jewish analytical methods and help one understand Isaiah’s prophecy.

Why Suffer?

For a long time I didn’t make the connection between Monday migraines and Sundays’ partaking of the gluten- and commercial yeast-rich sacrament bread, not to mention inhaling potent levels of fragrances some ward members feel compelled to wear that inevitably subject sensitive other ward members to often lingering allergic reactions. Being averse to taking medications …

Open Heavens

While the phenomenon of the heavens “opening” to persons who receive visions of God and angels is well known from the scriptures, it is not so commonplace that every believer in Jesus experiences it. And yet, as the scripture says, “The gate of heaven is open unto all, even to those who will believe on …

A Priest

It seems to me that being ordained a king or a priest has little meaning if the person so ordained merely bears those titles and doesn’t actually function as a king or priest—by God’s definition, that is, not man’s. Isaiah prophesies endtime persons being so ordained; but he also gives criteria for what it means …

His Program

When President Ezra Taft Benson used to say “Find out what your mission in life is and pay any price to fulfill it,” it made me think that each of us has a calling in life that is unique to us besides the general calling for us to be saved from sin and obtain eternal …

Does the Book of Isaiah Supersede All Other Prophecy?

Isaiah’s own testimony—that his revelations specifically address the end-time; that they foretell the end from the beginning; that Israel’s ancient history consists of a series of types or precedents that foreshadow things to come; and so forth—clearly define his book as centrally important to understanding God’s dealings in human history, past, present, and future. But …

The King

Isaiah predicts that before Jehovah’s coming to reign on the earth, kings and queens of the Gentiles will restore the house of Israel to God’s covenant and to lands of inheritance. We know from this prophecy and from other scriptures that these persons will serve as spiritual kings and queens not political ones. On the …

Above Offense

When situations in life greet you in which persons and institutions whom you would expect should most stand by you instead oppose you, it indeed presents a paradoxical challenge difficult to reconcile. You might say that such situations would likely rarely happen because most people and proven institutions are good. True, but there are also …

Doing and Believing

Time and again, I have proven to myself that the relationship between “doing” and “believing” works like a mathematical equation. As the Israelites said at the foot of the mount at the time they covenanted with God, “We will do and we will hear” (na’a’seh wenismâ’; Exodus 24:7), meaning that with the doing comes the …
