Isaiah's Introduction of the Gospel
Series Isaiah 40
The second section of the prophecy of Isaiah begins with a word of comfort to God's people. Their exile and severe punishment under the curse of the Mosaic covenant (Deut. 28:63ff) has ended and God is restoring his people. Israel knows that from their history restorations have occurred but they went back into sin and punishment. Who is this God who can bring about the reality of the gospel? Yahweh himself in his faithful love promises to come among them and rule them as the Shepherd King. Because he is sovereign Creator, they can have confidence that He has the power to fulfill his promises as they trust in him. Yahweh is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth.
