Maybe I can help: I have a different perspective on Isaiah 7. The narrative is historical and more immediate, the prophecy of the sign in verse 14 is not. From Tiglath-Pileser to Sennacherib is about 65 years. Isaiah 7:8 tells us the timeline, but Samaria didn't fall until 2 Kings 18:9-12 after Ahaz's time. This was in the time of Shalmaneser and King ...

Isaiah 55:11 (ESV): so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it. LXX: οὕτως ἔσται τὸ ῥῆμά μου ὃ ἐὰν ἐξέλθῃ ἐκ τοῦ στόματός μου, οὐ μὴ ἀποστραφῇ ἕως ἂν τελεσθῇ ὅσα ἠθέλησα, καὶ εὐοδώσω τὰς ὁδούς σου καὶ τὰ ἐντάλματά μου. ...

This is a very special passage that comes to a new reality when Jesus appears - in ways hardly imagined by the people of Isaiah's day or any other time before God's mystery was made known. Jesus IS the word of God - His logos who accomplishes what God sent him to do. Jesus is sent to do vital work which culminates in his obedient death on a cross. He was of ...

The verse has a four-fold parallel structure. We can benefit from the approach of Kugel to parallelism in his book "The Idea of BIblical Poetry..." (1981, Yale University Press). Kugel posited that parallelism is best read as "A moreover B" where each clause accepts the previous clause and builds on it. If so we can regard the four verbs ...

Isaiah knew about the law for sprinkling purifying water in Numbers 19: 11 “Whoever touches a human corpse will be unclean for seven days. 12They must purify themselves with the water on the third day and on the seventh day; then they will be clean. He also knew the ablution ritual in Exodus 29:4 Then bring Aaron and his sons to the entrance to the tent ...

Colossians 2:9 has minimal connection with Isaiah 7:16 Brackets in passage are mine. 10 Then the LORD spoke again to Ahaz, saying, 11 “Ask for a sign for yourself from the LORD your God; make it deep as Sheol or high as heaven.” 12 But Ahaz said, “I will not ask, nor will I put the LORD to the test!” 13 Then he said, “Listen now, house of David! Is it too ...

“but emptied εκενωσεν himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men.” ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭2:7‬ ‭ The Bible translates εκενωσεν in different ways but the word essentially means to render useless, to void, to nullify and this comes from the idea of emptying. (This illustration has limitations because God a spirit nullified His ...

The verb in Luke 4:18 translated "anointed" is χρίω (chrió), from which we get the official title of Jesus, "Christ" = anointed one, or, Messiah in Hebrew. The five uses of this verb in the NT answers the question: Luke 4:18 - “The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to ...

Regarding God's "Anointed One" מְשִׁיחוֹ֘ in Isaiah's prophecy, we read about two Messiah(s) : Cyrus & Israel. While Cyrus | כ֣וֹרֶשׁ "Koresh" is called by God - "His Anointed One" in [Isaiah 45:1], the prophecy of [Isaiah 61:1] is about an Anointed Israel who acts as God's Servant to the nations. Isaiah 45:1 - "So ...

The Hebrew text explicitly says, "because the Lord has anointed me." So it is not the Holy Spirit who anoints, but He is the anointing oil itself, in Jesus' case. I would argue that Jesus was anointed with and by the Holy Spirit Himself, sent by the Father (John 14:26), to preach the gospel by His power while on earth, and not by His own divine ...

1 Samuel 16:13 So Samuel took the horn of oil and anointed him in the presence of his brothers, and from that day on the Spirit of the LORD came powerfully upon David. The anointing oil symbolizes or represents the Spirit of the LORD. Jesus was not anointed with physical oil but literally with the Spirit of God in Matthew 3:16 As soon as Jesus was ...

Sought out for his ability to heal, Jesus was well acquainted with human infirmity. The text records his innumerable encounters with the sick, the disabled and those who were otherwise afflicted in body or spirit. This verse in Isaiah, however, seems to reference first hand rather than indirect experience of physical infirmity. A man of great pain and ...

I agree with the premise of the question stated in the first sentence of the OP as stated in my answer to the previous question, here, > Isaiah 53:3 acquainted with חלי - grief, suffering or infirmity? The sickness that the suffering servant of Isa 53 would be know is the sickness of our broken humanity (Ps 51:5, Rom 3:10-18) in which the Messiah shared, ...

English Standard Version Isaiah 53:3 He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Whatever one says about חֱלִי in Isa 53;3 one must also say about its occurrence in V4 because the two appear in parallel - V4 builds on the meaning in V3. It is certainly true that חֱלִי most often means sickness/infirmity. In fact, of the 24 times this word appears in the OT, 20 times it is translated sickness/affliction/disease, etc, and four times "...

The incident involving Hezekiah's illness occurred during the hegemony of Assyria, about 700 BC during the reign of Sennacherib. The government of Babylon was almost a government in exile and struggling to survive and needed all the friends it could get.

The "seeking/doing your own pleasure" in Isa 58:13 has been the subject of (in some isolated legalistic circles) intense debate. However, the sense is clear even from ancient times. The best explanation is actually provided by the LXX in its translation of Isa 58:13 which reads: ἐὰν ἀποστρέψῃς τὸν πόδα σου ἀπὸ τῶν σαββάτων τοῦ μὴ ποιεῖν τὰ ...
