Please click on the linkage to the Scripture and read the verses then we will summarize what we have learned.

Isaiah 46:1-13  Isaiah reminds the people that the worship of idols is futile, since they are weak and helpless and offer no hope.

Isaiah 47:1-15   The nation of Babylonia will be devastated by the Lord because of its wickedness and pride.

Isaiah 48:1-22   Throughout their history the nations of Judah and Israel have rejected God.  But He continues to love them and to call them back from their wicked wayward ways.

Isaiah 49:1-26    Isaiah 50:1-11   Isaiah 51:1-23   Isaiah 52:1-12   Isaiah 53 1:12   Isaiah 54:1-17   Isaiah 55:1-13   These seven chapters of Isaiah contain more of the prophet’s famous “Servant Songs” (Isaiah 42:1-9).  At times the prophet seems to speak of the nations of Judah and Israel as God’s servant.  But in other places in these passages, it is clear that he is referring to the Servant who is to come – the Messiah.  Chapter 53 is clearly messianic in nature.  It portrays the “Suffering Servant” – Jesus – who gave His life to secure redemption for others:  “He was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon Him; and with His stripes we are healed” (v.5).
