SCRIPTURE OF THE WEEK - ISAIAH 11:1-9

We are approaching the celebration of Jesus, the Lord's anointed, the Christ. Isaiah had a vision of an anointed of the Lord who would change the world in such a way that "The wolf shall dwell with the lamb, and the leopard shall lie down with the kid". What did Isaiah understand the characteristics of this Messiah to be? "The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon him...His delight shall be in the fear of the Lord...with righteousness he shall judge the poor, and decide with equity for the meek of the earth..."

No wonder the Gospel writers understood Isaiah to be speaking of Jesus. Isaiah and Jesus both saw Justice and Mercy as being key catalysts for bringing in the Kingdom of God. As disciples of Jesus it is our task to live lives of Justice and Mercy.
