Time to Make a New Year’s Resolution?

Read Isaiah in 90 days

662

Naturally, there are many resources out there to help us study, but I have chosen to start simple this year with the “Introduction to Isaiah,” Old Testament Study Guide for Home-Study Seminary Students lesson plans. However, I will add some things from the Old Testament Seminary Teacher Manual too, and of course, other discoveries from the commentaries I have been reading.

What this means, is that in the next 13 weeks you can read and study Isaiah with me, but studying it diligently like the Lord commanded, is up to you. Naturally, if you missed the January start date, you could start this anytime and be though Isaiah in just 90 days, or at least that is our goal; five or so chapters a week for the next three months.

Remember this study outline is taken from the Old Testament Study Guide for Home-Study Seminary Students, but my findings from studying this will show up in my Discover Isaiah column of this blog, just not in the Isaiah Studies section.

I am a retiree from Scouting. There I blogged for VoiceOfScouting.org, a site with more than 250,000 readers. During 42 years in the workplace, I've had many years senior level management with the BSA, professional associations, and high tech user groups. My background includes capital fundraising; outdoor adventure program development; property and construction management; event/conference planning; risk management and safety; lobbying federal, state and local government agencies; public relations; strategic planning; member advocacy and staff/volunteer training. Along the way, I have also taught Gospel Doctrine Classes and been both the ward and stake Sunday School President. In these settings, I have seen teachers and class members minimize Isaiah, a book Christ has commanded us to "search diligently." (3 Ne 23:1) With that in mind, I will do my best to explore and post my discoveries about the book of Isaiah. I am not a Bible scholar; like you, I read Isaiah in the Old Testament cycle of study in LDS Gospel Doctrine Classes and again in the Book of Mormon Cycle, so this is a whole new scripture adventure for me.

  1. I have never really studied Isaiah, but I’m excited to delve into it. Is there a community we can go to to post questions or ideas that we have?

      This is our community. Keep leaving comments and asking questions. You will find answers in our “Ask Isaiah” section. We will also work to connect you to others who are like minded

  2. Are the teachings of Isaiah easier to understand if I use the seminary teaching manuals? When Isaiah is taught in Seminary what method of teaching best resonates with students? I am wanting the most simple version of the teaching of Isaiah and then I can build upon them as I have questions.

    • Kelsey
      We selected the Old Testament Study Guide for Home-Study Seminary Students because it is used worldwide for students who are self-driven and still want a seminary experience. We are not sure there is a more basic course around than this.

  3. I love that you gave a chart where people can follow along and read with you! It’s great we have access to these resources.
