Lesson 2: Our Urgent Need: A New Self-Awareness I (1:2-9)

This week we are focusing on Isaiah 1:2-9. The following are some study suggestions to help you get started:

LIMITED TIME:

  1. Read through Isaiah 1:2-9.
  2. Meditate on and/or journal the answers to the following questions.
    1. What does this passage teach me about God and His character?
    2. How does this aspect of God’s character change my view of myself?
    3. What should I do in response?

MORE TIME:

  1. Read through Isaiah 1:2-9 and make personal notes on a copy of Isaiah. (See “Getting Started in Personal Bible Study” for suggestions on how to do this. I have put together a pdf of Isaiah for your convenience.) Don’t forget to read and reread! Here are some possible questions to start asking yourself.
    1. Who is speaking? Who is called to listen?
    2. What is He saying? About whom?
    3. How is the rebel described in vs. 5-6?
    4. Why is Sodom and Gomorrah mentioned in verse 9? If your not sure, check out this cross reference- Gen 19:24-25.
    5. In Romans 9:29, Paul quotes Isaiah 1:9. What is Paul saying in Romans 9? Why do you think he quoted this verse?
  2. Meditate on or journal the answers to the following questions.
    1. What does this passage teach me about God and His character?
    2. How does this aspect of God’s character change my view of myself?
