Jesus’ commandment to “search Isaiah diligently” in 3 Nephi 23:1 is part of a literary bracketing structure that reveals to us precisely WHY He commands us to do it! Not only does searching Isaiah help us understand the tapestry from which all scripture is woven, but there are specific latter-day prophecies Jesus wants us to be aware of and to personally warn us about. Don’t miss this grand adventure in studying the words of Christ! Highlights include: Four keys from the Book of Mormon for understanding Isaiah; the brides of Jehovah in Isaiah 54; the Ages of Time in the Epistle of Elijah; Jesus’ chiastic letter to the house of Israel in 3 Nephi 20:10–46; Jesus’ chiastic letter to the Gentiles in 3 Nephi 21; the “Roaring of the Lions” and Micah 5:1–10; Mormon’s chiasmus about the Three Nephites in 3 Nephi 28:30–36; and the final warning to the Gentiles in Jacob 5, Isaiah 11; and 3 Nephi 20–21.
