THE SCENE shifts from Isaiah's prophecies of imminent invasion by Assyria to looking ahead to the Medo-Persian conquest of Babylon. At the heart of it all is God's plan to restore the fortunes of His people, Israel. We discuss the courtroom setting of these chapters, the divine council implications, and how God uses prophecy to establish the truth of His word.
