Isaiah 1-12

- Led by Pastor Frey -


A materialistic society, political parties divided by foreign policy, enemies threatening our way of life, increasing religious indifference and immorality – sounds like a description of 21st Century America, but it’s not. This is the world to which Isaiah proclaimed God’s Word 700 years before Christ was born. This study will help us apply God’s Word to our lives and understanding the setting in which we have some of the clearest promises of the birth of Christ.
