The Year of the Lord’s Favor (Isaiah 61:1-11)

We end the year looking at the last of the Servant Songs. "The year of the Lord's favour" referred to in verse 2 was something that Israel was familiar with. From the verse, we see that this Servant will come to proclaim what happens in a year of the Lord's favour. As our year ends and a new one begins, this text shows us also what this means for us in the year ahead. 

The Suffering Servant Of The Lord (Isaiah 53:1-12)

Today, we'll take a look at another Servant Song in Isaiah, one that could be more familiar to many of us. Let us take a closer look at these verses and see what the Servant of the Lord is like. 

A New Song for the Servant (Is 42:1-9)

We begin with our first Servant Song in the book of Isaiah. Written 600 years before Christ, these were prophecies and presented a portrait of the coming Messiah for the people of God.
