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

  • A disciple
    God calls many, who after prove unworthy, and end up doing and causing very much evil. King Saul ended up being an enemy and persecutor, and caused civil war in Israel, because of his envy of David. Ahaz ended up being the one who called the Assyrians for help; which ultimately destroyed and carried away captive the whole Northern kingdom. Apostates and hypocrites are the worst traitors!
  • A disciple
    The reason the Jews don't believe, is a wicked and defiant heathen heart! I have heard too much "excusing" and glossing over the terrible treachery committed by Israel against God and against His Anointed. What did ALL the Prophets write, protesting their evil, heathen minds, and all their hatred and hostility towards God and His servants? Its simply because they love the evil, and hate the good!
  • Irene123
    The reason the Jews didn't/don't believe in Jesus is because of the same idea His apostles had in Acts 1:6. The Jewish nation is still looking for the restoration of the old boundaries of Israel to be in control of the Jewish nation. They never understood because they wanted what they wanted - not God's will, in their lives. We are to PRAY for Jerusalem ........

    Thank God for this

    Hello David H. I disagree with you, this isn't what the writers of the NT believed at all. You should read Matthew 1 v.23 and Luke 1 v.35. God bless
  • David H.
    I agree that the words spoken by Isaiah concerning the conception of Christ was not a prophesy. It truly was a sign for King Ahaz. The whole idea was to strengthened his faith.
    He was trusting man for something he should have, all along trusted God for.
    To here these words concerning a virgin conceiving and believing that God will make that happen, Should have an impacted his faith in God.
