The Book of Isaiah - Chapters 40-48
This week (11/17) we look at Isaiah's words of hope to the people in captivity. The Israelites are full of fear and sorrow, but God tells them to not be afraid, because he is with them and will deliver them. God's presence and our communion with him is better than anything any other idol or thing of this world can offer, and it is all possible through Jesus!
1. How would you have felt if you were an Israelite taken into captivity? Do you think you would be repentant?
2. What were some of the things the nation of Israel was supposed to be for the world? How is it that we as the church can be those same things today?
