ABSTRACT ISAIAH’S THEME OF JUDGMENT AND REDEMPTION PREACHED TO THE CONGREGATION OF FIRST CALVARY BAPTIST CHURCH Mitchell Barry Evans, Jr., D.Min. The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2017 Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Duane A. Garrett Redemption does not occur by God’s removing his judgment; instead, redemption comes through judgment. This project demonstrates the theme of redemption through judgment from the book of Isaiah in seven sermons. The first sermon sets the stage by demonstrating the contrast elements of judgment and redemption in Isaiah 4. Then, Isaiah’s call into ministry is considered, and the message of judgment he is called to proclaim. Judgment is not limited to Israel; ultimately it is a global sentence, as depicted in the third sermon from Isaiah 24. The fourth sermon provides the first glimmer of hope by showing judgment and its reversal in Isaiah 39-40. The next two sermons flesh out the redemption that is ushered in by judgment in Isaiah 44 and 55 respectively. The final sermon brings redemption from judgment full circle by showing God’s ultimate plan from humanity in Isaiah 65. VITA Mitchell Barry Evans, Jr. EDUCATIONAL B.
