In this first of a two-part episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, I talk to Liam Goligher, senior minister at Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, where he has been preaching through the book of Isaiah. In Part 1 covering Isaiah 1–39, Liam discusses:

  • applying Isaiah’s preaching to today
  • the holy seed and righteous branch
  • the human and yet divine baby to be born
  • the fundamental problem of God’s people
