Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord.
7 Therefore, brothers and sisters, you must be patient as you wait for the coming of the Lord. Consider the farmer who waits patiently for the coming of rain in the fall and spring, looking forward to the precious fruit of the earth. 8 You also must wait patiently, strengthening your resolve, because the coming of the Lord is near. 9 Don’t complain about each other, brothers and sisters, so that you won’t be judged. Look! The judge is standing at the door!
10 Brothers and sisters, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord as an example of patient resolve and steadfastness.
The Isaiah unit uses the Bible story included in Isaiah 7:14; 9:2, 6; 11:1-9. Long before Jesus was born, the Hebrew people were living in a time of great strife and unrest, and they longed for peace and hope. Their prophets told them of a promised Messiah, a gift from God. The Messiah would be a savior who would care for them as a shepherd cares for sheep. The promise was like a light leading them out of the darkness.
