Love Isaiah!

One Like unto Moses

The Lord’s promise to Joseph in Egypt that he would raise up a “choice seer” out of his lineage (2 Nephi 3:6–7, 11, 14) was supremely fulfilled in the Prophet Joseph Smith. The “work” he would perform, which would be “of great worth” to Joseph’s descendants, consisted in part of bringing forth the Book of …

The Atonement—Outgrowth of God’s Covenants

Jesus’ atonement for this world’s transgressions occurred as a direct fulfillment of God’s covenants with his people Israel.

What is the “spirit of prophecy” that helps understand Isaiah?

Question: What is the “spirit of prophecy” that helps understand Isaiah? Answer: As “the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy” (Revelation 19:10), people to whom the Holy Ghost testifies that Jesus is the Christ have a greater advantage in understanding Isaiah’s words than those who don’t.

Israel from National to Universal to Individual

One of several layered holistic literary structures of the Book of Isaiah—this one based on Egyptian narrative patterns—divides the book into Trouble at Home (Isaiah 1–39), Exile Abroad (Isaiah 40–54), and Happy Homecoming (Isaiah 55–66). These three different historical settings, rather than being grounds for multiple authors of the Book of Isaiah, demonstrate its literary …
