Isaiah is one of my favorite books in the Bible. Reading Dr. Stedman’s commentary alongside Dr. Stuart’s lecture on this book allowed for a more thorough learning experience.

One thing I learned from these courses that is primarily teaching to obey the Lord and do what is right in His eyes.

Really great insights into interpreting these books. Summaries are well done. Especially Isaiah which is a massive book. Makes me appreciate God revelation even more to know it all applies to my life today.
