Character in Context

Episode 53: Isaiah and the Messiah 17–The Everlasting Covenant and Good News for the Outcasts.

March 27, 2020

We've finally made it to the end of the series! This week there is an exciting bit of context that I have been sitting on for awhile but I finally feel confident about teaching it. Did you know that the word covenant only appears four times in all of Isaiah 40-55? Twice in reference to the servant who is given as a covenant to/for the people, once in the covenant of peace we talked about last week--but this week we have talk of an "everlasting covenant, my steadfast, sure love for David."

Join me as I talk about why I believe this is referring not to the Sinai Covenant, which was already eternal because it was blood ratified, but instead to the kingly Davidic covenant, which I believe was made eternal when it was blood ratified at the Cross.
