Online Access to the Isaiah and Jeremiah

ProvincieNoord-Holland (NH)

This fall we tackle the first two of our major prophets, Isaiah and Jeremiah. Isaiah—the “thundering prophet”—served as a prophet in Judah, 740-686 B.C. Together with king Hezekiah, Isaiah rescued Jerusalem in 701 B.C. from the clutches of Sennacherib, king of Assyria, when the “angel of the Lord” put to death 185,000 Assyrian troops in a single night . . . and no one heard a sound.   Jeremiah—the “weeping prophet”—served as a prophet in Judah, 626-586 B.C. Tragically, Jeremiah witnessed the destruction of Jerusalem and Solomon’s temple at the hands of Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, in 586 B.C., and he watched as the Jewish survivors were taken captive in chains to Babylon . . . the beginning of the 70-year Babylon captivity. In Lamentations, Jeremiah gives his eyewitness account of the two-year siege of Jerusalem, 588-586 B.C., and he graphically portrays the terrible suffering the people endured.
  What a prophet writes (or says) always has immediate application within his (or her) own historical time frame, but what a prophet says may also speak of future events, as well, especially as they foreshadow the coming of the Messiah.   This fall, we begin an extraordinary journey through some of the most remarkable books in all of Scripture, the prophets.   * You will receive the website link and password on the payment confirmation page and in your email.
