June 7: Isaiah Confronts Ahaz
Unit 15, Session 2: Isaiah Confronted Ahaz
Ahaz was in a difficult position. If he joined the alliance with Israel and Syria, the Assyrian king would destroy him. If he did not join and the alliance won, he was as good as dead. God sent Isaiah to give Ahaz a message. God would be Ahaz’s ally. What did he have to fear with God on his side? God gave Ahaz a sign: “The virgin would conceive a son, and name him Immanuel.” Jesus fulfilled this promise when He came to earth and was born of a virgin. Jesus is our Immanuel, God with us.
