Search The Scriptures —Study 31 — Isaiah 51: 17 – 52:12

b8f9c-search-the-srcipturesStudy 31 From the Book of Isaiah is: Isaiah 51: 17 – 52:12

  1. Consider the seeming hopelessness of Zion’scondition in 51:17-20, 23.  How and why does God promise to act on her behalf (51:22; 52:3-6)? What must she herself do (52:1, 2)?  What  message has this for a backsliding Christian? Cf. 1 Jn. 1:9.
  2. Let your imagination picture the joy of Zion, describe described in 52:7-12. What application does the apostle Paul make of this passage in Rom. 10:14, 15 and 2 Cor. 6:17?

Notes:

  1. 51:23. An allusion to the practice of making captives lie face downard on the ground, and using their backs as a road to walk on.
  2. 52:8. ‘Eye to eye’: i.e.,  face to face.  This is how they will see the Lord when He returns to Zion.
