Commentary:  Last week’s reading concluded on a depressing note, but chapter 51 reveals God’s plan for the future of Israel, although they must first wake up!  Chapter 52 speaks of the redemption of Israel and Jesus’ return.  Chapter 53 tells of Jesus’ first coming, the suffering he will endure, or the eternal salvation that will be granted through His suffering.  Chapter 54 is a song of joy for when Israel reclaims the land given to their ancestor, Abraham.  Chapter 55 speaks of salvation.

Focus Verses:  51:4-16  Another message of hope.  The warnings throughout Isaiah are important, just as the messages of hope are!  What is the importance of having both?  Why should both be studied?
