Dr. Creasy talks here about what makes a prophet as described by Moses and how Isaiah fits into this vision. Prophecies on the Asyrian Empire’s attack on Israel are immediately relevant to his time and his writing and can be related to future Messianic times. Learn about the book of Isaiah and the prophet’s life in this interesting audiobook.
Prophets are emphatically not seers who gaze into the future and predict far-off events; they are God’s spokesmen who always speak into their own historical context. Sometimes what they say may foreshadow messianic or “end time” events, but they always have an immediate historical reference.
Understanding a prophet’s historical context is essential to understanding his message. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy in this dazzling exposition of Isaiah, the first of the major prophets.

Prophetic mystery solved
As always, Dr. Creasy takes a complex book of scripture and makes it accessible to the listener through context of its time and through the literary design of the writing. In a scholarly yet perfectly understandable introduction, he informs us how to understand prophetic writing at the primary level of the historical context of the day, and also the prophetic (future) message between the lines, often referring to the coming Messiah. Just that much information clarified my former confusion over what has always been mysterious. The four "Suffering Servant songs" in the final third of the book have never been so full of meaning and emotion until this reading. For anyone looking to gain understanding of Biblical scriptures, this series is the best I have ever found.

Great beginner's bible study <br /><br /><br />
I love how he ties Isaiah to the New testament. His dramatic reading and personal stories make this a very enjoyable way to study the bible. No wonder he was one of the most popular professors at UCLA. I started with Acts about a year ago. I plan to go through the whole bible with Dr Creasy.
