Joy (3). Joy in Isaiah.

You would expect to hear much about joy in the writings of the “evangelical prophet” and you would be correct.

In Isaiah 9:2-3 describing the coming of Christ we have joy, the joy like that of bringing in a bumper harvest or dividing the rich spoils of war. Redemption is our great source of joy (Isaiah 52:9, 55:12) and this redemption means our justification like drawing water for our thirst (Isaiah 12:3) and being given precious jewels for our wedding (Isaiah 61:10).
