3. Recall the Messianic prophecy, given in 7:14.

4. In verse 18 of chapter 8, what was meant for the family of Isaiah?

5. In chapter 9 verse 3, what can be looked forward to?

6. Recall the names of glory describing Jesus Christ and their significance found in Isaiah 9:6-7.

7. What is the refrain that closes chapter 9 (and was used three times throughout the chapter)?

8. Recall the historical background and political history

1. What were the four double references found in chapter 7?

Consider the law of double reference as seen in these chapters;particularly in four areas. First, the Hebrews' persecution at the hands of foreign rulers is described;that is, Isaiah's day and also of the great tribulation still in the future. The second double reference, the judgment of the nations, both of Assyria and of the marshaled hosts at Armageddon, is described. Third, God's dealing with the Jewish remnant, both after the Babylonian captivity and after the great tribulation. Fourth, the advent of the Messiah, both His virgin birth and His future return to the earth in glory.

2. What is the significance of the name of Isaiah's son, Shearjashub, given in chapter 7?

The name Shearjashub means "a remnant shall return," and it is clearly a link with the last words of the previous chapter that says, "Yet there will be a tenth portion in it, (Isaiah 6:13).

So the son of the prophet is a sign of the fulfillment of Jehovah's word to the prophet

3. Recall the Messianic prophecy, given in 7:14.

"Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel.

4. In verse 18 of chapter 8, what was meant for the family of Isaiah?

In verse 14, they were to fear God above all and look to Him; He will be their salvation or their stone of stumbling. This was literally fulfilled in Christ in 1 Corinthians 1:23, where Paul says, "But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling block, and unto the Greeks foolishness."

5. In chapter 9 verse 3, what can be looked forward to?

Isaiah 9:3 You shall multiply the nation, You shall increase their gladness; They will be glad in Your presence As with the gladness of harvest, As men rejoice when they divide the spoil.

6. Recall the names of glory describing Jesus Christ and their significance found in Isaiah 9:6-7.

Now let us look at the names of glory found in verses 6-7, that the Spirit of God adorns the man child with.
"WONDERFUL." This is not an adjective.
"THE MIGHTY GOD." He is the one to whom all power is given.
"THE EVERLASTING FATHER." It simply means that He is the Creator of all things, even time, the ages, and the far-off purpose of all things.
"PRINCE OF PEACE." There can be no peace without Him

7. What is the refrain that closes chapter 9 (and was used three times throughout the chapter)?

The chapter closes with the solemn refrain repeated for the third time, "For all this his anger is not turned away, but his hand is stretched out still" (verses 12,17, and 21).

8. Recall the historical background and political history found in these three chapters.

It is important for you to remember what has been taught in chapters 7 and 8 in order to understand chapter 9.
In chapter 7, there was a sign given that a virgin should conceive and she should bear a son and his name be called Immanuel.

In chapter 8, we see the immediate meaning that completes the double meaning in the birth of the second son of Isaiah.

Chapter 9, It is as though Isaiah could look down through the ages and see the Lord Jesus full of grace and truth, making known the wonders of God and His redeeming love to those who heard and accepted the Light of Life.
