Isaiah 7

My friend Luke is taking an independent studies class on the book of Isaiah.  Last night we talked about the identity of Immanuel in 7:14.   The book of Immanuel (Isaiah 7-12) focuses on the Syro-Ephraimite crisis during the reign of King Ahaz.  Here’s a chart on the passage with a lot of helpful historical information. 

I think that once we figure out historically what was happening in the time period, we’ll have a better idea of how to read this difficult text.
