Notes: January 3, 2009 – King Ahaz, Part 2

Isaiah 8-10

  • Ahaz’s unholy alliances with pagan nations spurred a prophetic message against such confederations.
  • Ahaz’s sin gives occasion for God to announce the coming Messiah (Isaiah 7:14; Isaiah 9:6-7)
  • Ahaz’s disobedience to the word of God gives occasion for the rule that only God’s law is truth (Isaiah 8:20)
