Heidegger's Bible Handbook: Isaiah: Manner of Teaching

3. The manner of teaching is set forth.



The manner of teaching, if I might add a few things concerning this, is abundant and extraordinarily full: the speech is lucid, perspicuous, and evident. And this Prophet is a true and divine Orator, much more excellent than Pericles,[1] himself also thundering and flashing, leaving darts in the hearts of his Hearers. He is certainly one, lest Pagans be able rightfully to despise the sacred writers, or the Church of GOD appear to be destitute of any excellent gift, graver, more eloquent, more ornate, and greater and more sublime in the magnitude of matters, than all the historians, Orators, and Poets together: finally, if such had written in Latin, he would have darkened the glory of all the Latins; if in Greek, of all the Greeks.

[1] Pericles (c. 495-429) was an influential Athenian politician and general. He is remembered as a powerful and persuasive orator.

Having now finished OT, and NT studies, and my own multi-year reading of Wylie’s History of Protestantism (Church History), I feel I’m…

Greetings, Ron. No, we never followed-up on the reading list. If you have a particular area of interest, I would certainly be happy to make recommendations.


I expect much from Wendelin's treatment of Systematic Theology, and he has not disappointed. I think that you will find him helpful.


Hopeful about getting back to Revelation this year...
