We know that Isaiah is important, but probably couldn’t say why, and almost certainly don’t understand it! This first of five lessons on Isaiah introduces the book. This portion of the episode covers:

  • The historical context of Isaiah
  • Dating Isaiah 1-30
  • More on Isaiah and the Book of Mormon
  • Isaiah in LDS context
