6 Ways Isaiah Prepares Us for Christmas

Don Carson on understanding the prophecies of Isaiah

On today’s podcast, TGC president Don Carson shares thoughts on how to understand the prophecies in Isaiah that point to the promised Messiah, Jesus Christ.

  1. Isaiah gives us a spectacular expectation of a Davidic king (Isa. 9).
  2. Isaiah introduces us to the term “Immanuel” (Isa. 7:14).
  3. Isaiah introduces us to the Suffering Servant (Isa. 52:13–53:12).
  4. Isaiah promises a new heaven and new earth (Isa. 65:17).
  5. Isaiah looks forward to the ultimate freedom from exile brought about by the salvation we have in Christ Jesus.
  6. Isaiah promises a branch from the stump of Jesse, signaling hope after God’s judgment (Isa. 11).
