Bracketing Isaiah

Examining Its Most Difficult Passages

In this course, we will utilize the Bracketing (or Arcing) Bible study method to explore some tough passages in the wonderful book of Isaiah, while also carefully reading through its entirety. In doing this, we aim to stretch our understanding of God’s grand plan in history as we marvel at the glory of Jesus—promised and revealed.
