Information about the audio download Understanding Isaiah in the Book of Mormon
Jesus Christ told the Nephites: “A commandment I give unto you that ye search these things diligently, for great are the words of Isaiah.” (3 Nephi 23:1-3) Isaiah deals with 4 time periods; recognizing them is a reading key.
In Understanding Isaiah In the Book of Mormon, each Isaiah Book of Mormon chapter is discussed with other related scriptural insights added to enhance understanding. The author also shows how geographical and historical clues can help to understand the scriptures.
In the Biblical Book of Isaiah, the prophet Isaiah wrote and spoke about four different periods of time. Identifying and recognizing which of the four periods he is writing about is an essential key to understanding his great prophetic messages. Those four periods are:
- (1) events concerning the fall of Israel (the 10 tribes) to Assyria;
- (2) the fall of Judah to Babylonia, the Babylonian captivity, and the Jews later return to their homeland;
- (3) the mortal mission of Jesus Christ and related events in the meridian of time; and
- (4) Isaiah’s many prophetic insights about last-days events.
Each of the four periods of prophetic fulfillment is covered in this talk.
Extra attention is given to Isaiah’s prophecies of future events such as the coming of the Ten Tribes, the return and redemption of Israel, the Rod and the Branch, the Battle of Armageddon, the glory of Jerusalem during the rule of David the Prince, and Christ’s coming in glory.
An important key to understanding Isaiah is to recognize that he often compared events in one period with events in another period, jumping from one period to another.
The author, Duane S. Crowther, holds a graduate degree from Brigham Young University in Old Testament and is well qualified to present the teachings of the great prophet Isaiah in an orderly, easily understood manner.
