Recognizing Christ in the Prophecies of Isaiah
As we traverse the season of Lent and celebrate Easter, we focus on spiritual preparation in the same way Jesus spent 40 days in the desert spiritually preparing for his ministry. This Groundwork series studies the late chapters in Isaiah where the prophet introduces us to “the servant of the Lord.” Together, we'll discover our Messiah and God's plan for all his covenant people by digging into the same prominent chapters that informed the Apostles as they began to teach about Jesus Christ and salvation by grace.
