In this commentary, John Calvin delights to note and expound upon the numerous prophetic passages that were fulfilled by Jesus Christ, and emphasizes how Isaiah teaches that salvation is God's principal work. For hundredsof years Christendom has been blessed with commentaries written by great men of God highly respected for their godly walk and their insight into spiritual truth. Even as the prophets cried out against Judah's empty idolatry and warned of the judgment they would receive, he stressed God's 's holiness, patience, and mercy. Redemption is Isaiah's centraltheme, evidenced in his declarations about Judah's temporal need for salvation - and every soul's eternal one. Consequently Isaiah, more than any other prophet, foretold the coming of the Messiah and all that would follow.
