The Messianic Songs of Isaiah have been called the 'Fifth Gospel' - Why?
Stuart Sacks, Jewish believer, musician, author and broadcaster shows us how these fascinating sections of the prophecy of Isaiah point to one person as the Jewish Messiah.
"The author's ability to move fluidly between the promises and prophecies of Isaiah and their New Testament fulfilment makes this an enlightening and practical book. Clearly Stuart Sacks is thrilled to introduce to us his Messiah, and to encourage us all, Jew and Gentile alike, to know him..."
Pastor, Glenurquhart Free Church of Scotland
"This is a study of the ‘servant songs' from Isaiah showing their relationship to Jesus. There are 13 chapters in all, the last 6 of which deal with the last ‘song'. In each chapter of the book Stuart Sacks moves through an Isaiah passage and the related passages from the gospels, letters, psalms and other OT writings showing, with a Jewish understanding, how the messianic theme runs through them all.
The reader is led gently along to see how the eternal love of God portrayed by Isaiah in the servant songs. They are seen as part of the seamless history of God's plan for the salvation of man and the timeless nature of his promises. This is a good book for quiet personal guidance and reflection."
... a much needed antidote to man-centredness and truimphalism; provided in the best possible way- looking at Jesus the servant
"Stuart Sacks brings the prophet Isaiah and his message to our day. It is a message the church needs to hear."
