    Explanation
    Isaiah had a big influence on King Hezekiah. Isaiah was a prophet in ancient Israel who played a significant role in advising and guiding the kings of Judah. Hezekiah was one of the kings of Judah who reigned during the 8th century BCE. Hezekiah is known for his religious reforms and his efforts to strengthen Jerusalem's defenses against the Assyrian empire. Isaiah's prophecies and counsel were instrumental in shaping Hezekiah's decisions and actions during his reign.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The enemy that God was using to judge Israel in Isaiah's time was

    • A.

      Rome

    • B.

      Canaan

    • C.

      Caesarea

    • D.

      Assyria

    Correct Answer
    D. Assyria
    Explanation
    In the time of Isaiah, Assyria was the enemy that God used to judge Israel. The Assyrian Empire was a powerful and ruthless nation that conquered many lands, including parts of Israel. God allowed Assyria to invade and punish Israel for their disobedience and idolatry. This is evident in the biblical accounts of Assyrian invasions and the destruction they brought upon the Israelites. Therefore, Assyria is the correct answer as the enemy that God used to judge Israel during Isaiah's time.

  • 4. 

    One of Isaiah's major contributions to the Bible is his prophecy concerning the coming Messiah.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Isaiah's major contribution to the Bible is his prophecy concerning the coming Messiah. This means that Isaiah predicted and foretold the arrival of the Messiah, who is believed to be Jesus Christ in Christian theology. This prophecy is significant because it is seen as a fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies and serves as a foundation for the belief in Jesus as the savior and redeemer. Therefore, the statement is true.

      Joab

      Jeremiah

    • E.

      Nebuchadnezzer

    Correct Answer
    D. Jeremiah
    Explanation
    Jeremiah is the correct answer because he was indeed one of the prophets who faced severe persecution from both the rulers and the people. Throughout his prophetic ministry, Jeremiah faced opposition, imprisonment, and physical abuse from various kings, officials, and the general public. He was mocked, ridiculed, and even thrown into a cistern by his own people because of his messages of warning and judgment. His sufferings and persecution make him one of the most persecuted prophets in the Bible.

    • D.

      Jeremiah

    • E.

      None of the Above

    Ezekiel is the correct answer because he had a vision in which God brought him to a valley full of dry bones. God told Ezekiel to prophesy to the bones, and as he did, the bones came together, flesh appeared on them, and they became alive. This vision symbolized the restoration of the Israelites, who were spiritually dead and in exile. Ezekiel's preaching would bring them back to life and restore them to their land.

      Ezekiel

    • E.

      Other

    Ezekiel is considered the most demonstrative or animated of all the major prophets because his prophecies are filled with vivid and dramatic imagery. He often used symbolic actions and visions to convey his messages, such as lying on his side for a certain number of days or shaving his head. His prophecies also contain detailed descriptions of supernatural beings and events, making his style of prophecy more visually striking and dramatic compared to other major prophets like Daniel, Isaiah, and Jeremiah.

The book mourns the consequences of the city's sins and serves as a reflection on the consequences of disobedience to God. Therefore, it is accurate to say that Lamentations is mainly about lamenting over the destruction of Jerusalem.
