Overview

For the early church fathers, the prophecy of Isaiah was not a compendium of Jewish history or theology but an announcement of the coming Messiah fulfilled in the life and ministry of Jesus of Nazareth. As such, the prophet’s words were a rich source of theological reflection concerning their Lord and a vital aid in their defense against the objections of the Jews that Jesus was the promised Messiah. The interpretation of Jesus’ ministry in light of Isaiah’s prophecy was not a theological innovation on their part, but rather a following of the path blazed by the New Testament writers and Jesus himself.
