    John Doe Bibl104-D99 Dr. Adler Bible Dictionary Project #1 July 24, 2016 I. Book of the Old Testament: Isaiah

    A. Authorship, Date, Location, Structure, and Literary Genre of the Book of Isaiah

    According to Hindson and Towns “the traditional view is that Isaiah composed the book about 700 B.C. Critical scholarship has argued for multiple authorship of the book and has viewed chapters 40–66 as coming after the time of Isaiah” (p. 217). The strongest line of evidence that one author, Isaiah, wrote all 66 chapters comes from the New Testament: “references include Matt. 3:3 (quoting Isa 40:3); Matt 4:4 (quoting Isa 9:1–2); Luke 4:17 (introducing a quote of Isa. 61:1–3); John 12:39 (introducing a quote of Isa. 53:1); Acts 8:28–35 (quoting Isa. 53:7–8); and Rom. 10:20 (quoting Isa. 65:1)” (p. 218). Biblical Dictionary Assignment Project

    With regard to dates, Isaiah himself records when he ministered in the first verse of his book: “The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah” (Isaiah 1:1, ESV). Therefore the time period he was a prophet would have been between about “739 to 686 B.C.” (MacArthur, p. 952).

    In terms of the structure of the book, Dr. Constable stated that “occasional time references scattered throughout the book indicate that Isaiah arranged his prophecies in a basically chronological order (cf. 6:1; 7:1; 14:28; 20:1; 36:1; 37:38). However, they are not completely chronological” (p. 10). The literary genre of the book of Isaiah is both poetic and narrative. “It includes extended doublets, arch trajectories, and unique palindromes (sentences beginning and ending with the same words), chiastic parables, and cross alliteration” (Hindson and Towns, p. 215).

    B. Key Themes and Major Events in the book of Isaiah “Isaiah had an immediate word of warning to both Israel and Judah that Assyria was on

    the march and would be used by God to punish them for their sins” (Wiersbe, p. 15). In addition to being a book warning of impending judgment, Isaiah also incorporated hope into his messages. This message of hope is seen in the number of prophecies related to a coming Messiah. Dr. Constable states that “Isaiah’s emphasis on the coming Messiah is second only to the Psalms in the Old Testament in terms of its fullness and variety. God revealed more about the coming Messiah to Isaiah than He did to any other Old Testament character” (p. 9).

    There are two key events that serve as the background: (1) “the invasion of Israel by the Assyrian king Tiglath-Pileser III” and (2) “he invasion of Judah by the Assyrian king Sennacherib” (Hill, p. 522). Although Judah was invaded by Sennacherib, the great and humble King Hezekiah turned to Lord for help and God saved him and the nation of Judah, and the Assyrian army was destroyed.

     

    Comment [MEA1]: Use 12 point Times Roman font only! Start your paper off with a heading on the left-hand side of your paper. Do NOT use a cover page but start exactly like this.

    Comment [MEA2]: Use bold heading and bold sub- headings like this

    Comment [MEA3]: Notice I use direct quotes and list the author(s) and page number in the book. We do NOT need the book date or title here, only in the bibliography at the end of the paper.

    Comment [MEA4]: Since it is the same book I quoted from I do not need to re-type the author but only page number.

    Comment [MEA5]: Be sure to include a quote or two directly from the Bible! Also include the reference and Bible version. You only need to mention the Bible version once in your paper.

    Comment [MEA6]: This is a fine source to use and I will let you use it for this course. Here is the website: www.SonicLight.org Click on “Study Notes” and you will see all 66 books of the Bible on PDF files. Select the book you want and you will have at your finger-tips outstanding study notes and commentary for your Bible studies. Dr. Constable was a Bible professor for 30+ years at Dallas Theological Seminary and he posted his outstanding Bible commentary here online for free for the body of Christ, the church.

    Comment [MEA7]: Notice my spacing. For this course you can single-space your paper but double-space between headings like I have done here. Biblical Dictionary Assignment Project

    Comment [MEA8]: Notice that the period goes only at the end of the sentence AFTER the parenthesis with the in-text citation, not before it.

    Comment [MEA9]: Notice also, that I include my own thoughts too, so mix quotes from outside sources in with your own insights.

    Comment [MEA10]: Use clear organizational structure as I have here and use proper grammar.

    Comment [MEA11]: Continue writing your paper and use headings and sub-headings similar to these. Watch your “word-count” also; I don’t mind if you exceed your word- count by 100-300 words or so.

    Comment [MEA12]: You need to list the books you used and remember that you can ONLY use the two online website I pre-approved.
