113.1: Introduction to Isaiah; OT Lesson 36 (Core)

The Glory of Zion Will Be a Defense


Class Member Reading: Isaiah 1; 2; 3; 4; 5; 6

Additional Reading: 2 Nephi 11

Other Reading: None


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 value of Isaiah
  • Isaiah as a testimony of Christ
  • Devotional and historical approaches to the scriptures
  • Isaiah, the KJV, and the Book of Mormon
  • Review of the reading and personal application

    One of my favorite online bible resources has been http://www.biblestudytools.com/. What I like about this site is that you can pick one of many translations to read. You can quickly see many translations of one specific verse.
    My favorite use of this site is the availability of two lexicons, one for the KJV and one for for the New American Standard.
    In the podcast you mentioned the value of commentaries as well.
    Let me list my favorite ones that I refer to regularly.
    Biblica – The Bible Atlas. (Beautiful art work to go along with easy to read suammaries of the history of the bible books. http://www.amazon.com/Biblica-Bible-Barry-J-Beitzel/dp/1845378849/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1411268741&sr=1-2&keywords=biblica+the+bible+atlas

    Thanks for your podcast. I have thought about volunteering as a guest on the program, but am continually blown away by the quality of guests you attract.
