What is Christianity?
Christianity is about God reaching out his hand in friendship to mankind. Christians believe that the whole world and everything in it was created by God. God is a personal being, a living God who is three, yet one: Father, Son and Spirit, just as we human beings have body, mind and soul! (see the Trinity).

The Bible says God created people in his image, to love him. Yet every person has rebelled against God and sinned. Yet instead of turning his back on us, God became a man, Jesus, who most scholars believe was born about the year 4 BC and lived among us. He taught a message of love throughout Palestine but public opinion turned against him and he was executed as a young man.

He died because of us - the death that we should have died. He was crucified on a cross, but he rose from the dead, and now calls us to trust him, to love him and to repent of our rebellion. If we do this, then we our relationship with God becomes restored and we will live forever with God.

Many non-Christians may think that being a Christian is about belonging to a particular church or following a certain set of rule. Most Christians however would agree that at its root, being a Christian means to be in a living relationship with Jesus.

August Scripture Portion for Bible Commentary : Isaiah 28 - Ezekiel 11, including the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations

Chapters 40--66 are often called the New Testament section of this book. Its 27 chapters are similar to the 27 books of the New Testament. It begins by speaking of the ministry of John the Baptist (chapter 40:3,4) and its emphasis is on Christ and salvation. At the very heart of this section is chapter 53, which is the greatest Old Testament prediction of Christ's death on the cross. Chapters 40--66 emphasize a note of comfort and redemption for God's people. It was written to encourage the Jewish remnant that they would be delivered from Babylonian captivity after their 70 years of exile. It covers the period after the Babylonian captivity, and Isaiah wrote this amazing prophecy more than 150 years before the remnant would need it for encouragement.

Chapter 40 contrasts the greatness of God with the feebleness of man (verses 6-8), and also His greatness is contrasted with the weakness of idols (verses 18-20).

In chapter 41 we see the greatness of God's purpose. Jehovah is not simply the God of the Jews; He is the controller of the nations. Notice that God used the heathen King Cyrus to conquer Babylon and enable the Jews to return to their land. God's ways are not our ways and are not always understandable to us, but He has a purpose in everything. We should simply trust Him explicitly to do His work in His way.

The greatness of God's pardon is seen in chapter 42. In verses 1-9 we are introduced to Jesus Christ. We see His first coming in humility and grace; His second coming in power and judgment. Of course, between these two events we have the present age in which we live. God had permitted the Jews to be captured and exiled to chasten them for their sins, but it would not last forever. He would come in judgment and destroy Babylon (verses 10- 17), using Cyrus as His toll.
