He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.Isaiah 42:4
Dear Chruch and Friends,
We have the privilege to read a passage found in Isaiah and then interpreted for us in the New Testament. So in addition to Isaiah 42 we’ll also consult Matthew 12. The old maxim is true that what is concealed in the OT is revealed in the NT, but what we have in Isaiah 42 is concealed only by a piece of thin rice paper.
“The prophet Isaiah, being lifted up and carried with the wind of a prophetical spirit, passes over all the time between him and the appearing of Jesus Christ in the flesh. Seeing with the eye of prophecy, and with the eye of faith, Christ as present, he presents him, in the name of God, to the spiritual eye of others in these words,” Richard Sibbes.
All my best,
