Description : Westminster John Knox Press is pleased to present the seventeen-volume Old Testament for Everyone series. Internationally respected Old Testament scholar John Goldingay addresses Scripture from Genesis to Malachi in such a way that even the most challenging passages are explained simply and concisely. The series is perfect for daily devotions, group study, or personal visits with the Bible. In this volume on Isaiah, Goldingay explores the first of the great prophetic books. Isaiah is a compilation of the prophetic messages of several prophets. Their messages to the people of Judah and Jerusalem included a call for injustice to be recognized, a message of liberation and hope from the oppressors of the people, and a message of the coming day of judgment. These separate messages are held together by the promise of a new age of redemption and peace that lies beyond the crisis of judgment.

Description : Preaching's Preacher's Guide to the Best Bible Reference for 2014 (Old Testament Commentaries) "Yahweh sits enthroned, high and lifted up A shoot grows from the stump of Jesse A Servant pours himself out to death Kings and nations stream to Zion" The book of Isaiah's imagery sparkles as it inspires. It draws us in to meditate and extends our vision toward the future. But what should we make of this sprawling and puzzling book—so layered and complex in its composition—as a whole? John Goldingay helps us make sense of this "book called Isaiah" as a tapestry of patterned collages, parts put together in an intentional whole. The Theology of the Book of Isaiah studies the prophecies, messages and theology of each section of the complex book, then unfurls its unifying themes—from Zion to David to the Holy One of Israel. Like a program guide to Handel's Messiah, Goldingay helps us see, hear and understand the grandeur of this prophetic masterpiece among the Prophets.

Description : The Book of Daniel begins with the trials of the Judahites in the aftermath of Jerusalem’s destruction by the Babylonians in 587 BC, when many were forced to live as immigrants in a strange land. It continues with visions relating to the trials of Judahites back in Jerusalem in a time of persecution four centuries later, visions that promise them God’s deliverance. The twelve shorter prophets are situated between the eighth and fifth centuries and speak both warnings and instructions to God’s people. For instance, Amos’s visions warn of Israel’s downfall, Jonah speaks to a wayward generation in Nineveh, and Haggai encourages the people to rebuild God’s temple in Jerusalem. Although these prophets appear at different times and preach to different audiences, they all have at their core an understanding of God’s overwhelming desire to connect with and reconcile himself to his people. Using personal anecdote, a witty and lively style, and drawing on his considerable theological knowledge, John Goldingay takes us deep into the unfolding story of the Old Testament.

Description : Winner of a 2004 ECPA Gold Medallion Award! In this first volume of a three-volume Old Testament theology, John Goldingay focuses on narrative. Examining the biblical order of God's creation of and interactions with the world and Israel, he tells the story of Israel's gospel as a series of divine acts: God Began God Started Over God Promised God Delivered God Sealed God Gave God Accommodated God Wrestled God Preserved God Sent God Exalted This is an Old Testament theology like no other. Whether applying magnifying or wide-angle lenses, Goldingay is closely attentive to the First Testament's narrative, plot, motifs, tensions and subtleties. Brimming with insight and energy, and postmodern in its ethos, this book will repeatedly reward readers with fresh and challenging perspectives on God and God's ways with Israel and the world—as well as Israel's ways with God. Goldingay's Old Testament Theology is not only a scholarly contribution to the ongoing quest of understanding the theological dimensions of the First Testament. Preachers and teachers will prize it as a smart, informed and engaging companion as they read and re-present the First Testament story to postmodern pilgrims on the way. This is Old Testament theology that preaches. Volume two focuses on Israel's faith, or Old Testament theology as belief. It explores the person and nature of God, the nature of the world and humanity, the character of sin and the significance of Israel. Volume three's focus is Israel's life, or Old Testament theology as ethos, exploring its worship, spirituality, ideals and vision for living.

Description : In this third volume of his critically acclaimed Old Testament Theology John Goldingay explores the Old Testament vision of Israel's life before God. The first volume focused on the story of God's dealings with Israel, or Israel's gospel. The second volume investigated the beliefs of Israel, or Israel's faith. Now the spotlight falls on the Old Testament's perspective on the life that Israel should live in its present and future, including its worship, prayer and spirituality, as well as its practices, attitudes and ethics before God. Goldingay sees three spheres of life giving order to Israel's vision: its life in relation to God, its life in community and the life of the individual as a self. Within these frameworks he unfurls a tapesetry that is as broad and colorful as all of life, and yet detailed in its intricate attention to the text. With this final volume John Goldingay has given us the third pillar of an Old Testament theology that is monumental in scope and yet invites us to enter through multiple doors to explore its riches. Students will profit from a semester in its courts, and ministers of the Word will find their preaching and teaching deeply enriched by wandering its halls and meditating in its chambers.

Description : The books of 1 and 2 Samuel vividly describe the passing of the age of the judges and the founding of the Israelite monarchy. We read of the rise and rule of Samuel, the last and greatest of the judges, and his role in establishing Saul and, later, David as kings over Israel. The wars, deceptions, victories, friendship, intrigue, rivalry, jealousy, and (for David) adultery and family discord that marked the reigns of these two men ensure that 1 and 2 Samuel are among the most readable - and relevant - books of the Old Testament. Using personal anecdote, a witty and lively style, and drawing on his considerable theological knowledge, John Goldingay takes us deep into the unfolding story of the Old Testament.

Description : It is reasonable to think that if God is God, and he wrote a book about what he has done, he would be able to prove it is his book beyond any reasonable doubt. This would involve making it clear that only God could write it the way it has been written. The purpose of these pages is to show he has done this, and to explain how it proves it is from God. This is about the prophecy of Isaiah in the Bible, and its 66 chapters, as they introduce the 66 books of God. What we have here is the most exciting and fascinating information available to man. All I have to do is convince you of that. I have set up the hypothesis for this study as follows: “The chapters of Isaiah's prophecy give a summary of each of the books of the Bible.” If this is so, then the purpose of Isaiah would be to bind the 66 books of the Bible together as the inspired writings of God. For the hypothesis to be true, each verse of each chapter of Isaiah must relate to the book in question. To explain this it is necessary to cite each verse and show the relevance to the book. The key that unlocks this message involves the first verse of the chapter with the last verse of the chapter, that points you to the book to which it refers. The subject of the book is in the middle verse or verses of the Isaiah chapter. I will give you 66 examples of this as we progress. There are several reasons for developing this hypothesis: 1. There are 66 chapters in Isaiah and 66 books in the Bible. 2. It has long been recognized there is a division of the book of Isaiah at chapter 40. This would make thirty nine chapters for the Old Testament books, and twenty six for the New Testament. 3. Every chapter (except two groups of four) deal with different subjects, which shows we are not dealing with a particular history or argument, so we are entitled to ask why the chapters do not connect. The two groups are interesting, they are chapters 36, 37, 38 and 39 that speak of Hezekiah, and chapters 52, 53, 54 and 55 that speak of Messiah. 4. Isaiah is a difficult book to understand, unlike any other in scripture. 5. The New Testament writers used Isaiah to prove what they wanted to say about Gentiles. There are or verses about one hundred and fifty direct quotations or allusions from Isaiah in the New Testament. So it is reasonable to suspect that Isaiah is the proof of all things. The rules that apply for examining this hypothesis are: 1. The issue in the chapter and the issue in the book must match, and this must be explained in such a way there is no doubt they are linked. 2. The first verse of the chapter in Isaiah should define the issue in the chapter and the issue in the book. And the last verse of the chapter, make a similar obvious connection. 3. The middle verse, or verses of the chapter, will give the subject matter of the book. 4. The size of the chapter is usually in proportion to the size of the book. This can vary with the size of the subject. If it is a small book with a large subject, it could be a large chapter. 3. There should be a significant list of connections between the chapter of Isaiah and the book to which it refers. 4. Each verse of the chapter must make sense in relation to the book. A connection must be a quotation or allusion or an argument on the same subject. Some will have difficulty with the parables of the Old Testament, because they may not have met them before. We need to keep in mind this information in the parables is not for everyone. Usually it is preserved for certain people at a special time and place. For instance it may be for convincing Jews of the twenty second century that Jesus is Messiah. That will involve showing how their own scripture, the Old Testament, spoke of the things outlined in The New Testament. The lord used parables to withhold information from those for whom it was not intended, and deliver it to those who were to know these things. So the idea there is mor

What we see is Isaiah's calling out of God's people in the midst of their sin and rebellion against The Most High, the forewarning of His judgments upon them and the nations for their sin, and to the remaining faithful remnant who, if they would put their trust in Him alone, put away their idols and fear no man, YHWH, through Isaiah, proclaimed the of hope of restoration and the future of God's people under who he referred to as the coming Suffering Servant, who we understand was/is fulfilled in the person of Christ Jesus, the Messiah, our Redeemer King!Come along on a devotional journey through the Book of Isaiah, and see what wonders of His love are revealed to your heart, mind and spirit....and along with the seraphim, you will not be able to refrain from crying out to Him " Holy, holy holy is the Lord of Hosts, (6:3) The Holy One of Israel!This devotional takes the reader through the book of Isaiah. The style is accessible for every Christian. Everyone from brand-new to long-time Believers will benefit from spending a few minutes each day reading about Salvation and Redemption through Jesus Christ.

Description : The drama of the Old Testament comes to life as Judah's most notorious king ascends to the throne in this gripping novel from the award-winning author of Isaiah's Daughter. At eight years old, Shulle has known only life in a small village with her loving but peculiar father. When Uncle Shebna offers shelter in Jerusalem in exchange for Shulle's help tutoring King Manasseh, Judah's five-year-old co-regent who displays the same peculiarities as her father, she's eager to experience the royal court. But Shulle soon realizes the limits of her father's strict adherence to Yahweh's Law when Uncle Shebna teaches her of the starry hosts and their power. Convinced Judah must be freed from Yahweh's chains, she begins the subtle swaying of young Manasseh, using her charm and skills on the boy no one else understands. When King Hezekiah dies, twelve-year-old Manasseh is thrust onto Judah's throne, bitter at Yahweh and eager to marry the girl he adores. Assyria's crown prince favors Manasseh and twists his brilliant mind toward cruelty, beginning Shulle's long and harrowing journey to discover the Yahweh she'd never known, guided with loving wisdom by Manasseh's mother: Isaiah's daughter, the heartbroken Hephzibah. Amid Judah's dark days, a desperate remnant emerges, claiming the Lord's promise, "Though we're helpless now, we're never hopeless--because we serve El Shaddai." Shulle is among them, a girl who becomes a queen through Isaiah's legacy.

Description : Old Testament Theology: Israel's Faith is the second of John Goldingay's magisterial three-volume Old Testament Theology. The award-winning first volume, Old Testament Theology: Israel's Gospel, followed the story line of the First Testament, developing its narrative theology. This volume finds its point of departure in the Prophets, Psalms and Wisdom literature, where we encounter a more discursive thinking that is closer to traditional theology. Whereas the first volume followed the epochal divine acts of Israel's "gospel" narrative, here Goldingay sets out the faith of Israel under the major rubrics of God Israel The Nightmare The Vision The World The Nations Humanity In a style that cleaves closely to the text, Goldingay offers up a masterful exposition of the faith of the First Testament, one born of living long with the text and the refined skill of asking interesting questions and listening with trained attention. Never one to sacrifice a close hearing of a text for an easy generality, or to mute a discordant note for the sake of reassuring harmony, Goldingay gives us an Old Testament theology shot through with the edge-of-the-seat vitality of discovery. The first volume of Old Testament Theology has triggered lively discussion in the academy. This volume too will be welcomed and discussed by scholars. But its fresh presentations of theological motifs, as well as its engagement with contemporary contexts, will also greatly enrich the treasury of insights this series makes available to preachers and communicators of the Old Testament.
