Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 43:1


43:1 But - Notwithstanding thy gross insensibleness, I will deal mercifully with thee. Created - That made thee his people, and that in so miraculous a manner as if he had created thee a second time. Redeemed - From the Egyptians. Called thee - By the name of God's people, which was as proper and peculiar to them, as the name of Israel.


Discussion for Isaiah 43

  • Irene123
    To Robert L. on Isa. 43 - The WHOLE O.T. was a 'shadow of the N.T. The Israelites were a type of N.T. Christians. In the N.T. Jews and Gentiles are as one in the Lord; each of, as individuals have to choose Jesus - or not. Everything in the O.T. pertains to the salvation plan in the N.T. The O.T. and new CANNOT be separated.

    I am impressed by the declaration of safety that Jehovah makes in verse 2. Seemingly, some brethen are drawing controversy out of the 'saviour' issue. This results from the reluctance to read the verse before and after verse 11. Yahweh simply reminds Israel in verse 12 that out of the wonders of redemption He has had upon them before, they should acknowledge that He has no competitor.

    since I can't get to your site 2 COR.9 talks of giving freely to the ministry I wholeheartedly agree we should a tithe is in the law it is not a freely given gift a requirement yes. the verse says nothing about tithe. Your comment that this supports tithe is wrong we give now out of love for the lord not a law commanding us. there is a new covenant; tithe is part of the old;give not pay

    This chapter is about the restoration of Israel at the second advent. Also, the condemnation of Israels sins. This chapter pertains to the Jews. There are no references's to Christians at all.

    Isaiah 43:11, I, even I, am the LORD; and beside me there is no saviour.

    As it applies to Earth's timeline the Saviour, Jesus Christ had not yet come. Even so Jesus Christ is one with God.

    John 1:1, In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    The Bible from beginning to end is about Jesus Christ.

    Really good question. Always search bible for answer!

    God specifically said there is no savior... How are you all still getting "Jesus" out of this?
