    → Time Stamps: (00:00) An overview of these chapters.(03:08) Three tips to help us understand and find more relevance in Isaiah. Tip #1: Liken. Isaiah’s writings can be likened to our current circumstances.(12:40) Tip #2: See it. Try to envision what Isaiah is portraying.(14:01) Tip #3: Know concerning the regions round about. Understanding the context of Isaiah’s world is key to unlocking his words.(16:45) There was division between Israel and Judah in Isaiah’s day. Ephraim and Syria were waging war against Judah. Isaiah counsels King Ahaz to not get into an alliance with any other group of people.(24:43) The coal placed on Isaiah’s lips can be seen as the Atonement that cleanses him. (28:18) God asks, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?” We should wear out our lives in proclaiming Jesus.(35:53) Isaiah sees the latter-day temple, gathering of Israel, and millennial judgement and peace.

    → Time Stamps: (00:00) An overview of these chapters.(03:37) Jacob sees the future struggles between the righteous and wicked. He quotes Isaiah, and explains that the Jews will return to Jerusalem following the Captivity. The Jews will reject Jesus, but will be gathered in the end. (10:40) Isaiah speaks of things that have been and shall be. The Lord works though patterns. Kings and queens as nursing fathers and mothers. (17:17) Three servant songs of Isaiah are quoted in the Brass Plates.(24:04) God speaks comfort to those in Zion who have suffered. Jesus will conquer chaos.(28:55) Our master delivers us from the awful monster of death, hell, and the Devil.

(51:06) Jacob asserts that the Jews are the only people who would crucify their God. Isaiah refers to “The Holy One of Israel” several times in his writing. An angel tells Jacob that his name shall be “Christ,” demonstrating that Jacob received revelation that the Holy One of Israel is Jesus, the Anointed One.

    → Time Stamps: (00:00) An overview of these chapters.(04:21) Nephi’s positive attitude contributes to who he becomes. He breaks his bow and makes a new one.(07:32) Ishmael’s death causes many in the family to murmur.(15:23) Nephi possesses the accoutrements of kingship, which may help demonstrate that he and his successors have the right to rule. The sword of Laban, the Brass Plates, and the Liahona may be associated with the Israelite Ark of the Covenant.(24:26) Nephi is commanded to build a boat, but his brethren oppose him. The Lord shocks Laman and Lemuel into obedience.(39:41) As they journey across the waters, Nephi’s brothers bind him with cords. After being threatened with death from a great storm, they loose Nephi’s bonds.(42:58) These passages illustrate Nephi’s ascent. He becomes a king and brings his people into a state of abundance and fertility.(44:13) Nephi makes a second set of plates for a wise purpose known unto the Lord.(48:32) 1 Nephi 19.10 testifies that the ancient prophets saw Jesus in vision. Zenock, Neum and Zenos are examples of prophets who saw Jesus and his Atonement. Nephi quotes Isaiah 48-49.(55:44) Israel will be gathered and saved in the last days.

Incredible deep dive into the background and context

Mike and Bryce do an incredible job of outlining several different ways we could read the texts, as well as make parallels to other texts tying symbols, motifs, and lessons together. The historical contexts, ways of understanding the different potential linguistic interpretations, make this such an enlightening discussion to follow along with. I absolutely love listening to this podcast every Wednesday and add it as a supplement to my personal study

Dan, Missouri ,

Thank you!

I have often felt I would have loved to live in the days when the Lord had a “ school of the prophets “…… Dream come true! However, it’s 4:30 in the morning , I’m snuggled in with a blanket, ear pierce, and of course my writing tablet. Thank you brethren! Your last names may not be “Pratt” but I’m sure you go “shoeless” from time to time as did brother Pratt! 😀😀😀
