Isaiah Nine: Isaiah's Style Of Writing

Having an understanding of Issiah's style of writing gives us an undersrtanding of what he is teaching

This section is the most important document in the Isaiah files. If you understand this chapter properly it will unlock the rest of Isaiah for you. Chapter 9 verse one is the most important verse. We have therefore written a great deal, explaining it because it is pivotal to understanding the rest of Isaiah's style. It is not easy to say: but none of the modern translators have seen the import of this verse. Almost all make the mistake of making the contrast in verse one, a contrast of quality rather than of intensity. If you will read this chapter carefully and see the reasons why the contrast is as we state it you will then see clearly the changes in "scenes" between the Assyrians and the Messiah that Isaiah outlines. If you read anything with deliberation in these documents we recommend that you spend some quality time here.
