Item description for God's Prophet, God's Servant: A Study in Jeremiah and Isaiah 40-55 by John Goldingay...

It is easy to think of Christian ministry as an exercise of our gifts or even finding fulfillment for ourselves. In God's Prophet, God's Servant, John Goldingay examines the portrait of a prophet's ministry found in Jeremiah and the portrait of a servant's ministry in Isaiah 40-55, showing us that in both cases, God calls us to a deeper and more demanding view of ministry.

Reviews - What do customers think about God's Prophet, God's Servant: A Study in Jeremiah and Isaiah 40-55?

A series of sermons on the Servant of the Lord  Jul 24, 2008
John Goldingay has done some outstanding work in Isaiah 40-55, and these studies were penned and orally delivered in the mid 1990s, while the more substantial commentaries on these texts were being prepared. Goldingay discusses the role of the servant in Jeremiah 1 as a prophet to the nations, and how this is similar to the servant's role in the Isaiah texts.

The discussion in Isaiah was particularly interesting. Goldingay acknowledges that the servant in Isaiah is Israel in chapters 42-48, and is perhaps to be identified with the prophet in Isaiah 49:5, but that what is said about the servant in these texts and in Isaiah 52:13-53:12 goes beyond anything in the experiences of Israel and Isaiah. Goldingay sees fulfillment in Christ!

Goldingay also notes how the call of the servant in Isaiah 42 and Isaiah 49 has been closely associated not only with Christ, but with the first Christians (Acts 13:47-48).

These were nice messages, but it would have been nice to see a bit more application. But what is here is outstanding. It is easy to read and thought provoking.
