The Servant King

Looking at Isaiah Chapters 40-55 through the eyes of Tom Wright. This is a beautiful poem in Isaiah’s book of prophecy, pointing the way to Jesus as the Messiah.

The God of all comfort returns
Incomparable God reigns
God’s chosen Servant brings justice
God’s deliverer brings a new Exodus
God as Sovereign brings ultimate victory
God’s Servant will bring Salvation to all the Earth
God’s Servant will be vindicated
God’s Servant will be the Good News
The Death of the Servant: How the Servant is Exalted
The Renewal of the Covenant: How Israel is Welcomed back
The Radical invitation: How all may live in the New Creation
The end of Exile and recognising God becoming King
The Church and rediscovering God’s Servant Vocation
