Isaiah60-62_Slides. "What is ultimate reality?" is the question posed in the last sermon, The City of God (Isaiah 60). Briefly, it is the world to come where God rules as King in righteousness (Isa 60:21) and where all sorrow and pain, evil and violence have been eradicated (Isa 60:19-20). This is in contrast to our present reality where all manner of vileness and darkness, rebellion and sin is prevalent and not at all unexpected.
Isaiah 60-62 display the glorious future of a Jerusalem in which God's glory shines through his anointed Servant (Isa 61:1-3). That glory is an expression of the reality that will exist when the divine warrior's conquest of sin is complete (Isa 59:16-17; 63:1-6). [Isaiah 60-62 form the center section of the chiastic structure in which chapters 56-66 are arranged.]
