Wednesday Morning Bible Study – December 2018
Wednesday Morning Bible Study
Hymns of Second Isaiah
In the concluding chapters of the Book of Isaiah we find a collection of beautiful hymns from the liturgies of ancient Israel. As we prepare to enter the Advent Season, we will be revisiting these familiar passages from the Hebrew Scriptures. Come and join us as we explore the meaning of these liturgical songs for those who first heard them as well as their meaning for us today. Our group meets on Wednesday mornings for 10:30 to noon in the parish library.
November 28 Session One Isaiah 55: 1-11
Ho, everyone who thirsts,
come to the waters;
and you who have no money,
come buy and eat!
December 5 Session Two Isaiah 57: 14-21
For thus says the high and lofty one
who inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy:
I dwell in the high and holy place,
and also with those who are contrite
and humble in spirit.
December 12 Session three Isaiah 58: 1-12
The Lord will guide you continually,
and satisfy your needs in parched places,
and make your bones strong;
and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring of water, whose waters never fail.
