March 14, 2018 (Is 49:8-15)

Is 40-55 was written during the exile in Babylon when Jerusalem lay in ruins. It was meant to give hope to a despairing people. In the vision, the exile is over and people were streaming back to Israel like a Second Exodus. The passage is full of comforting images. It shows God’s faithfulness.
