Long before the birth of Christ, God placed connections in the book of Isaiah, linking it to every book in the Bible. These connections were not visible to man as the rest of the Bible was being written down or assembled. God concealed this mystery for approximately 2,000 years until the Bible was given chapter and verse divisions. Today many people who study the Scriptures call the book of Isaiah a “miniature-Bible,” this is for numerous reasons. For one, the book of Isaiah has 66 chapters, and the Bible has 66 books. Incredibly, every chapter of Isaiah is connected to the book it represents chronologically.
Below are four samples of chapter connections God placed in the book of Isaiah.
ISAIAH Chapter 1
Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah. (Isaiah 1:9)
GENESIS – 1st Book
Then the LORD rained upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire from the LORD out of heaven: (Genesis 19:24)
ISAIAH Chapter 2
In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold,.. (Isaiah 2:20)
EXODUS – 2nd Book
Ye shall not make with me gods of silver, neither shall ye make unto you gods of gold. (Exodus 20:23)
ISAIAH Chapter 40
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. (Isaiah 40:3)
MATTHEW – 40th book
The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. (Matthew 3:3)
ISAIAH Chapter 66
For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain. (Isaiah 66:22)
REVELATION – 66th Book
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away… (Revelation 21:1)
As you study this subject closely, it will become obvious that these connections are not just a coincidence. People have found that each chapter of Isaiah has multiple connections linking them to their corresponding book. In the following pages you can read at least one Isaiah chapter connection for every book of the Bible.
