Discussion for Isaiah 37

  • Jeff herrin
    we look at 2 kings a book of history in Isaiah is books of major prophets. Isaiah was writing of the same time as these kings lived. Some of 2kings and 2 chronicles tell of the same things that happen just like in Jeremiah history and prophet of the same times.
  • Jack
    I would like to know why Isaiah 37 reads exactly like 2 Kings 19 word for word, does anyone know?
  • Andrew
    That is not 3 Gods, it is 3 persons in ONE God. There is only ONE God. Why 3 persons in one God, will remain a mystery, and will always be until we be in Heaven. All throughout the Bible is the Trinity. I have no trouble with that. This is what we call faith, faith in the word of God, when we cannot understand, but because God spoke it, we just believe.
  • Gloria
    Grant, What trouble are you talking about? I know you are refering to the Christian 's believe about the Trinity. That is, God the Father, God the Son and God the HolyGhost. Pls, relax with what you believe and leave the Christians alone who believe in Trinity. If you know the word of God, you will not argue about the Trinity. Christians do not believe in three gods but base their believe on three personalities in one GOD ok. After the fall of man, man lost his relationship with his maker Gen. 3 . God out of His goodness and mercy, sent His only begotten son Jesus Christ to redeem and reconcile man back to Himself John 3 16 . He came in the nature of man in order to relate well with His creature.Jesus exist before the world came into being John 1 The sacrifice He made on the cross paid the utmost price for humanity and anyone who believes and accept Jesus as his or her saviour and Lord, will be saved. Then God will send the third person in Trinity the HolyGhost to guide and direct him or her in righeousness of our Lord Jesus. Thanks.

    I am not troubled in believing Three Gods in One Fact with verse 20 in answer to Grant's comment.
  • People who beleive in the Three Gods in One theory have trouble with this verse.
