Isaiah 58-66: A Glorious Future

(58) Why was God not pleased with Israel’s fasting (v1-5)?

What did God expect the people to do along with their fasting (v6-7, see also the “If” statements in v9-10, 13)?

What would be the results (Then… in v8-12, 14)?

What application do you find in this chapter for us today?

(59) How does God describe their sin (v1-8, compare with Romans 3:10-18)?

How would you summarize the results (v2, 9-15a)?

How does God respond (v15b-19)?  How else does God respond (v20)?

(61) What will Messiah come to do (v1-3, see also Luke 4:16-21)?

What would be the results (v4-11, see also 62:1-5)?

(60) What words and ideas are frequently repeated in this chapter?

What phrases and ideas are also found in Revelation 21:1-22:5?

What do you learn about God’s promise for the future?

(65) What words and ideas are repeated in v17-25?

What more do we learn about the future?

(66) What words and ideas are repeated in v18-23?

What more do we learn about the future?

From these chapters, how would you summarize God’s future plans for his people?

What kind of people is God looking for (v2b)?  Why do you think this is?  How well does this describe you?
