“And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust.” Romans 15:12
Other than Psalms, Isaiah is the most frequently quoted book in the New Testament. And Jesus and his apostles referred back to Isaiah more than all of the others prophets put together.
Because Isaiah is messianic—it speaks of Christ.
This two-volume collection of sermons by Prof. Homer C. Hoeksema reflects this central idea. These books give us a fuller, clearer understanding of the timeless words of Isaiah as he points us to Christ.
"[The savior] reveals himself as The Prince of Peace, the peace of God that passes all understanding, because he brings about that peace in his blood, causing us to be reconciled to God.
He brings about that peace in our hearts by the mighty operation of his Spirit. And he shall bring about that peace in the everlasting dawn, when he comes again to judge the living and the dead."
