Week Forty-Two

THE PROPHETS 

  • God sent His prophets to Israel and Judah to try to turn them from idolatry and false religion. But 'they mocked God's messengers ….and there was no remedy" (2 Chronicles 36:16).
  • Isaiah spoke during the reigns of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, kings of Judah, when Judah was surrounded by the Assyrians (see map). He made known many wonderful promises concerning Jesus and the Kingdom on earth.
