Daily Bible Reading: Isaiah 19 - 21
Verse of the Day: Isaiah 21:6 – “For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Go, set a watchman: let him declare what he seeth:”
The Book of Isaiah has often been called the Bible in miniature. It displays a remarkable similarity to the Bible in its whole. Consider:
*Isaiah has 66 chapters, the Bible has 66 books.
*Isaiah has two sections – chapters 1 – 39 and 40 – 66. The Bible has the Old Testament with 39 chapters, and the New Testament with 27.
*Isaiah 1 – 39 emphasizes God’s righteousness, holiness and justice. The first 39 books of the Old Testament emphasis are on God’s righteousness, holiness and justice.
*Isaiah 40 – 66 is on God’s glory, compassion and grace. The New Testament is on God’s glory, compassion and grace.
Prayer: Father, let me seek other similarities between Isaiah and the Bible today. Amen.
