Another amazing thing about the Isaiah connections is found in the arrangement of the 39 Old Testament books. God had the Christians assemble the first seven books of the Old Testament in the same order as the Jews. The remainder of the books are arranged differently by Jews and Christians. Incredibly, every chapter of Isaiah has connections linking to both the Jewish and the Christian order of books. Many times both are connected using the same verse from Isaiah.

This is the order of the Old Testament Books

* Same order


Below are four samples of connections for the Christian & Jewish book orders

ISAIAH Chapter 10
For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea… (Isaiah 10:22)

II SAMUEL – 10th Christian Book
…that all Israel beas the sand that is by the sea for multitude… (II Samuel 17:11)

I KINGS – 10th Jewish book
Judah and Israel were many, as the sand which is by the sea in multitude… (I Kings 4:22)


ISAIAH Chapter 9
…of his government… there shall be no end…, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish… it even for ever. (Isaiah 9:7 )

I SAMUEL – 9th Christian Book
… for now would the LORD have established thy kingdom upon Israel for ever. (I Samuel 13:13)

II SAMUEL – 9th Jewish Book
… and thy kingdom shall be established for ever before thee: thy throne shall be established for ever. (II Samuel 7:16)


ISAIAH Chapter 21
…As whirlwinds in the south pass through… (Isaiah 21:1)

ECCLESIASTES – 21st Christian Book
The wind goeth toward the south, and turneth about unto the north: it whirleth about continually… (Ecclesiastes 1:6)

NAHUM – 21st Jewish Book
…the LORD hath his way in the whirlwind and in the storm…
(Nahum 1:3)


ISAIAH Chapter 15
…I will bring… lions upon him that escapeth…and upon the remnant of the land. (Isaiah 15:9)

EZRA – 15th Christian Book
…so that there should be no remnant nor escaping? (Ezra 9:15)

HOSEA – 15th Jewish Book
…For I will be… as a lion, and as a young lion… I, will tear… I will take away, and none shall rescue him. (Hosea 5:14)


Later in this study, you can also see at least one chapter connection for every book of the Old Testament in the Jewish order along with the Christian order.

These connections testify that God had His hand on the Jews and the Christians, as they were assembling the inspired books of the Bible. It also shows that God chose the Jews to be the stewards of His word, knowing He would later work through the followers of His Christ (the Messiah). There are several verses in Isaiah AFTER chapter 39 that predict the Gentiles would be enlightened.

Example:

(Isaiah 60:3) And the Gentiles shall come to the light
(Isaiah 42:6) I the LORD have called thee in righteousness… for a light of the Gentiles;

Then in the 42nd book of the Bible, God makes a connection with:
(Luke 2:32) A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
