Isaiah 61 comes from what is sometimes called Third Isaiah, written in advance for or when Judah returned from Exile to Jerusalem.
The people were discouraged at not experiencing the great joy they had anticipated. Most people struggled to sustain themselves in poverty, and rebuilding the Temple languished. But a few people became very wealthy and very powerful, which the prophets cried out against.
Isaiah 61 is rooted in the Year of Jubilee in Leviticus 25 in which debts were canceled, slaves freed and property returned to original owners every 50 years. It was a socio-economic reset button to give people on the bottom a chance for a fresh start.
The Lord watches over the strangers; he upholds the orphan and the widow. Reading Isaiah during Advent, tells us that with the birth of Jesus, God turns human power upside down and brings joy out of mourning. The Lord is with you. Since before the time of Mary, many Jewish girls dreamed that one of their children would be the Messiah.
She knew God reversed human expectations. Not only am I convinced Mary was conversant with the Hebrew Scripture, I suspect she was a contemplative. After the shepherds had seen the newborn Jesus and left praising God, Mary treasured and pondered these things in her heart 2: She probed deeply the spiritual significance of being the mother of the Messiah.
From Nazareth to the Hill Country of Judah was about an 80 mile walk.
Very few people rode animals or wagons. No one, certainly not a young woman, traveled alone, but in the days the walk would take, Mary had plenty of time to meditate on seeing herself in the Song of Hannah 1 Samuel 2: When she saw Elizabeth she was ready with her own song, The Magnificat.
Echoing Hannah, Mary celebrated that with the birth of her child, Jesus, God was turning human power upside down and bringing joy out of mourning.
We pick up that theme from Hannah in 1 Samuel 2: The bows of the mighty are broken, but the feeble gird on strength. The barren has borne seven, but she who has many children is forlorn. Listen for how Mary echoed Hannah in Luke 1: He has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts.
Do we believe God is active and might interrupt in our personal or congregational lives? What are you hearing from God during this interruption between pastors? Can you find God's hand turning human power upside down and bringing joy out of mourning in the recent racial tensions? As we anticipate celebrating the birth of Jesus, what might God use us to turn upside down to bring joy out of mourning to Highlands Christian Church?
How many prophets wrote Isaiah? Chapters were clearly written by Isaiah to people about events that were happening in Judah in the 8th century BCE. Chapters do not mention Isaiah or any of the people or events of 8th century BCE and speak quite directly to the conditions Judah was facing while in exile in Babylon.
Chapters also do not mention any people or events of the 8th century BCE and seem to fit conditions when the people of Judah had returned to Jerusalem after the exile in Babylon.
I grew up and was educated in a tradition that insisted that the prophet Isaiah wrote the entire book in the 8th century BCE. At some points this position became a litmus test Shibboleth — Judges Many other scholars believe the second and third sections were written by other prophets than Isaiah at the time Judah needed those specific messages from God.
Most believe that the prophet who wrote the third section chapters is likely also the one who assembled the book of Isaiah as we have it today. Though the three sections are distinct, they do share some common themes and literary approaches.
Personally I would suggest that whichever approach makes the most sense to you, you should not treat it as a test of faith and condemn those who hold the other opinion.
I certainly believe God is quite capable of inspiring Isaiah in the 8th century BCE to write what the people of Judah were going to need going into and coming out of exile. From a strictly literary perspective, Isaiah as a whole is commonly viewed as a towering pinnacle of human literary achievement in any language at any time.Pastor Dora's Sermons About Me.
