The prophecy of Isaiah occupies a large place
in the Old Testament canon of Scripture, not only from the viewpoint
of its length, but also from the perspective of its significance.
Second only to the psalms, it is the book most frequently quoted in
the New Testament. Among the books of the prophets, it is quoted by
Jesus and his apostles in support of the New Testament gospel of
grace more frequently than all of the other prophets put together.
In addition, Isaiah’s vocabulary is richer than that of any other
prophet, and even more comprehensive and diverse than that of the
Why did Jesus and his apostles quote from Isaiah as often as they
did? What did the author of this book see in the prophecy of Isaiah
that made him concentrate much of his preaching on this book for
some thirty years? The answer lies in the messianic characteristic
of the book; Isaiah speaks of Christ. Sometimes the prophecy is
indirect, vague, and difficult to understand. At other times clear,
literal, and straightforward. In either case, Isaiah always speaks
of the coming of the Messiah implying both the judgment of the
wicked world and the salvation of Zion.
The author of this book, Homer C. Hoeksema served as minister in the
Protestant Reformed Church from 1947 to 1959 as a professor of Old
Testament and Dogmatics in the Theological School of the Protestant
Reformed Churches from 1959 until his death in 1989. Hoeksema loved
the prophecy of Isaiah and preached on 125 different passages from
this book. Redeemed with Judgment: Sermons on Isaiah is the
transcribed and edited collection of these sermons.
