The book of Isaiah is the granddaddy of the Old Testament Major Prophets. What Beethoven means to music and Shakespeare means to literature, what Michelangelo is to art and Babe Ruth is to baseball, and whom Washington and Lincoln are among the presidents of the United States, Isaiah is among the holy prophets of God.


Isaiah’s theme is “God is my salvation.” Theologically, the word “salvation” means “deliverance from the penalty and power of sin, redemption.” Salvation sounds like it belongs inside the stained-glass windows of the church. 


However, Isaiah helps us unwrap the word in a way that everyday people understand that salvation is indeed our greatest need. Is God or something else your salvation?
