Following the oracles of judgment upon the nations, Isaiah speaks of a final judgment that will come, the Day of the Lord. In this day, the city of man will fall while the city of God shall rise. And through this final judgment, there shall be ultimate justice, hope, peace, and victory.

Isaiah delivers a series of twelve oracles against various nations in the Ancient Near East. These oracles show that God is the God of all nations. He is sovereign over all nations and shapes history towards His good purposes. He will bring judgment on all nations on the basis of His holiness. And He will redeem a people for Himself from all nations.

God has promised a future king to establish His Kingdom and secure salvation for His people. This promised King will be filled with the Holy Spirit and marked with righteousness. And this promised King will establish a kingdom that extends peace over all creation and restores His people from all nations. As such, we are to trust in the King, proclaim the King, and rejoice in the King.

Faced with geopolitical tensions that threaten the southern kingdom of Judah, King Ahaz is faced with a crucial decision: will he trust in God for salvation or will he trust in someone or something else? Through Ahaz's decision, we learn that false hopes placed in false saviors will result in our disappointment and devastation. But true hope for salvation is found in the God who is with us.

The prophet Isaiah receive a vision of God's glory. This prompts him to receive cleansing and to be commissioned to preach to hardened hearts. Even if the message is difficult and even if the message falls on deaf ears, God's servants are commissioned for the sake of his glory. We may not have a specific vision, but we have put our faith in the glory of the cross and the risen Christ. Thus, we have been cleansed and c...

Isaiah presents a beautiful picture of our future hope in God's Kingdom - people from all nations will gather together to worship God and live in perfect peace. But because human pride is the greatest obstacle to experiencing that future hope, we need to embrace a hopeful humility. This humility repents of prideful self-exaltation, removes idols that promise false hopes, and relies on God for true salvation. In the end, there ...

This first chapter opens up like a courtroom scene with God as the plaintiff and Judah as the defendant. Even though God has been a loving Father, God's people have rebelled against Him with their impiety and injustice. At the heart of rebellion is not merely the breaking of God's Law, but moreso the breaking of God's heart. Nevertheless, God graciously extends the invitation to repentance in order for God's peo...

We are called to weep with those who weep and bear each other's burdens with wisdom. Walking with others in grief means presence, empathy, and sacrifice.

While lamenting is just one part of a multi-faceted journey in processing grief, for Christians, it is an essential part. In this passage, we see four major steps for engaging in the practice of lament: turn, complain, trust, and ask. As we engage in these steps of lament, we can begin to process our grief.

Grief is a natural and appropriate emotional response to the unavoidable losses we experience living in a fallen world. Grief will be expressed in different ways by different people with a variety of emotional, physical, cognitive, and behavioral indicators. Often, we attempt to resist dealing with our grief because it is painful to do so, but that leads to the unhealthy alternatives of avoidance, anger, and addictions. The better ...

As much as we rightly herald Easter Sunday as a day of joyful victory, if we’re honest, life doesn’t quite feel like that. Rather, life feels much more like the Saturday in between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. And in this in-between period, we find ourselves groaning under the weight of sin and death - groaning because of the way things are, but also groaning because we look forward to the way things will be. But even in our groa...

Critics of Christianity have proposed alternative theories to explain away the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Three of those theories are the Theft Theory, the Unknown Tomb Theory, and the Spiritual Resurrection Theory. None of those theories hold much explanatory power.

While the disciples were supposed to be the pillars of the early church, upon Jesus' arrest and crucifixion, they ran away in hiding. However, later on, they are shown to be bold preachers and even courageous martyrs. What accounts for such a change? The only explanation is that the disciples saw the risen Christ.

The gospel accounts testify that women served as the first eyewitnesses to Jesus' resurrection, while the male disciples were cowering in fear. The fact that such an "embarrassing" detail was included suggests that it actually happened. Women were courageously the first ones to see the risen Christ.

Jesus' death and resurrection is not only attested to by Scripture, but there are also non-biblical sources that reference Jesus' death and resurrection. There is no event in ancient history that is more attested to, that has better and fuller evidence, that meets the criteria of historicity, than the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

After answering their questions and concerns, Paul concludes the letter by reminding them that being a faithful body of Christ is found in two main ways: relational love and commitment to one another and devoted, holy worship unto God. This is how a young, growing church will continue to thrive even in the midst of hardships and trouble.

Jesus' resurrection from the dead is attested to in the gospel accounts (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John). Those gospel accounts bear the marks of historical accuracy because they cohere to the historical data. Therefore, we have confidence to believe that Jesus' resurrection as recorded in the gospel accounts actually happened.

The Day of the Lord is the day when Jesus returns to bring both judgment and salvation. Paul reassures the Thessalonians that while that Day will happen unexpectedly and that it will be inescapable, they have nothing to fear because they are safe in Christ. And so, in light of that coming Day, Christians are to maintain situational awareness by knowing what time it is and they are to exercise self-control by holding on to faith, lo...
