Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 7:14


7:14 Therefore - Because you despise me, and the sign which I now offer to you, God of his own free grace will send you a more honourable messenger, and give you a nobler sign. A sign - Of your deliverance. But how was this birth, which was not to happen 'till many ages after, a sign of their deliverance from present danger? This promised birth supposed the preservation of that city, and nation and tribe, in and of which the Messiah was to be born; and therefore there was no cause to fear that ruin which their enemies now threatened. Immanuel - God with us; God dwelling among us, in our nature, #John 1:14|. God and man meeting in one person, and being a mediator between God and men. For the design of these words is not so much to relate the name by which Christ should commonly he called, as to describe his nature and office.


Discussion for Isaiah 7

  • Jane
    Robert if Isaiah 7: 14 is not taking about Jesus which other virgin gave birth to Immanuel in the bible except the prophesy in this chapter?

    Isaiah 7:14 is not, I repeat, is not, a prophesy of Jesus. If you bothered to read the previous verses, you would see that this is a sign to King Ahaz of Judah. There were other nations that wanted to invade Judah. God gave the sign of the birth of a child to show Ahaz that God was with him. King Ahaz ruled from 732-716. Jesus was never called Immanuel by anyone. Do some research.

    The peoples broken it, it's the people's that have to fix it. God has given us all power it is up to us to believe, nobody can do that except ourself through the power of God we our greated in his image. Through the power of the water and the blood which Christ has offered for a final otonement for the sin of all Man. We have access to that blood by believing in him repenting of our sin and being baptized into his death and having our sins washed away which in turn adds you to the body Acts chapter two read whole chapter God is very Clear Amen I say Amen what will you choose!!!
