BSF Study Questions People of the Promise: Kingdom Divided Lesson 19, Day 3: Selected Passages From Isaiah 1-39
7a) Isaiah 7:14 with Matthew 1:20-23: Isaiah prophesied: Therefore the Lord himself will give you[a] a sign: The virgin[b] will conceive and give birth to a son, and[c] will call him Immanuel. In Matthew Mary gave birth to Jesus who was a virgin who conceived by the Holy Spirit.
Isaiah 9:6-7 with Philippians 2:9-11: Isaiah prophesied: A son will be born who will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. Philippians tells us that God exalted him to the highest place and gave him a name above all names. At the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Isaiah 11:1-5 with Matthew 3:16-17: Isaiah prophesies the Messiah shall be from the branch of Jesse. The Spirit of the Lord will rest on him— the Spirit of wisdom and of understanding, the Spirit of counsel and of might, Righteousness will be his belt and faithfulness the sash around his waist. In Matthew, we see this Spirit rest on Jesus: As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and alighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.
Isaiah 11:10 with Romans 15:8-13: Isaiah prophesies: In that day the Root of Jesse will stand as a banner for the peoples; the nations will rally to him, and his resting place will be glorious. Romans tells us that Christ will be a servant of both the Jews and the Gentiles.
b) I like Isaiah 9:6-7 with Philippians 2:9-11 because it speaks to the life everafter. Every knee will bow one day — a day I’m looking forward to!
