ACCS OT 10: Isaiah 1-39

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

The Ancient Christian Commentary on Scripture
does what very few of today's students of the Bible could do for

of the fathers and a heart for the church have hand selected material for each
volume, shaping, annotating and introducing it to today's readers. Each portion
of commentary has been chosen for its salient insight, its rhetorical power and
its faithful representation of the consensual exegesis of the early

ordinaria, a text artfully elaborated with ancient and authoritative
reflections and insights. An uncommon companion for theological interpretation,
spiritual reading, and wholesome teaching and
