There can be little doubt that the book of Isaiah is one of the most theologically rich of any of the Old Testament books. As has often been said, Isaiah gives the fullest revelation about the Messiah in the Old Testament, and in fact it is possible to preach the whole Gospel from Isaiah.
But, while certain sections of Isaiah – such as chapter 6 or chapter 53 – are well known and loved, much of Isaiah is largely unfamiliar to most believers. Perhaps this is because of its size or some of the prophetic and historical content.
Isaiah is the longest book in the Bible, apart from the Psalms which is, in essence, a collection of separate literary units. Its biblical importance can be seen in the fact that the New Testament contains more than 400 references to Isaiah and Paul quotes from it many times in his letters.
Ignorance of any part of Scripture is not good, but that is especially true of a book which speaks so richly of Christ. The book, as a whole, presents a majestic and moving view of Christ.
