Easter is about the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus.
Beyond just working through a narrative account from the Gospels, this year we studied a passage that focuses on the implications of Easter.
Paul, in the second chapter of Colossians, teaches us some important lessons that derive from the reality that we serve a risen Savior.

King Hezekiah was a model king for much of his life. He has faith in God as the Trustworthy King and is rewarded both politically and personally.
His faithfulness wasn't total however and Isaiah uses Hezekiah's life to point us to the perfectly faithful King who is to come - the one celebrated on Palm Sunday - Jesus.

This transitional passage offers us a summary of the judgment and renewal that God has been promising in the previous chapters.

The people of Judah are warned against putting their faith in political alliances to deliver them from the impending Assyrian invasion.
God's clear message through Isaiah is, faith in the wrong things will fail. We must trust God, because he is a trustworthy king who wants to help us.

Isaiah's prophecies expand beyond just Israel in chapters 13-27. He offers judgments on many nations and empires.
Chapters 13-14 focus on Babylon, Assyria, and even the coming Medeo-Persian empire.
All of this is done to remind us that God is the Sovereign King and that he will humble the proud and the powerful.
Only text is available as I recorded this as a video to be played during our service, due to a scheduled absence.

Isaiah's ministry is initiated when he is given a vision of God in his heavenly throne room.
This vision sticks with Isaiah for the rest of his life. Beyond being a neat experience however, his vision offers us lessons as well, chiefly that God's holiness ought to humble us so we too can heed His call on our lives.
