Journal Through the Bible: Week 57 Thursday

Isaiah 11:1-12:6

Following the beautiful Messianic and future prophecies yet to be fulfilled that are found in chapter 11 is a beautiful psalm of praise in chapter 12.

Does God issue any commands?

  • No.

Does God make any promises?

  • God promised a rod would grow out of the stem of Jesse and a Branch out of his roots.
  • God promised that the enemies of Judah would be cut off but the enmity between the two nations of the divided kingdoms of Israel would end. 
  • God promised that the nation of Israel would inherit the lands that were promised to Abraham.
  • God promised the remnant of the people that they would once again smite the waters so that His people could cross dryshod. 

Does this passage teach anything about Jesus?

  • Jesus is the rod and the Branch out of the stem and roots of Jesse.
  • Jesus is the righteous judge of the poor and meek.
  • Jesus is the one that set his hand the second time to recover the remnant of His people from the ends of the earth to be an ensign unto the nations.
  • Jesus is the Holy One of Israel. (12:6)

Does this passage teach anything about yet-future events?

  • The earth will be smitten with the rod of the righteous judge and He will kill the wicked.
  • The wolf will dwell with the lamb. The leopard will lie down with a baby goat. And the calf, the young lion, and the fatling will dwell together: a little child shall lead them. The cow and the bear will graze together and their young will lie down together. The lion will eat straw. The asp will not sting and the poisonous snake will not strike.
  • The root of Jesse will stand as an ensign of the people and the Gentiles will seek Him.

  1. Leviticus is not my favorite book in the Bible right now, so I am going to follow your study instead.


Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.
Psalms 19:14 (KJV)
