Dr Neil Cushman comments on use of Ironside in preaching Isaiah - "Summary on Ironside: Therefore, Ironside’s commentary on Isaiah remains an effective tool for preachers who seek to understand Isaiah in respect to the overall argument of the prophet from the perspective of a dispensationalist. The commentary’s weaknesses, however, are significant enough that it might not be consulted by the preacher at all. First, this tome is not technical in any sense; it does not deal with the Hebrew text (including any textual critical issues). Second, it interacts very little with other literature on Isaiah. Third, it passes over difficult passages in Isaiah with little comment. Fourth, it does not have the advantage of using literary tools that have been developed in the latter part of the 20th century. In short, it is dated and somewhat devotional. But this is what one might expect from popular commentaries that were produced in the first half of the 20th century. This brief survey of Ironside’s commentary on Isaiah raises two related problems pertaining to homiletics and Isaiah for dispensationalists. First, sermons on this prophecy frequently overlook the argument of the book as a whole. Favorite texts are presented in isolation from the main theme. Many a missionary message has been preached from Isaiah 6 without comment on how this divine scene fits Isaiah’s overall message. Christmas sermons on Isaiah 7:14 or 9:6 skim over the greater implications of messianic promises of the Davidic king’s incarnation. Passion sermons on Isaiah 53 (Isaiah 52:13-53:12) disregard this chapter’s placement between promises of Israel’s restoration (Isaiah 51:1-52:12) and a song that celebrates Israel’s national salvation (Isaiah 54:1-17). Second, few exegetical resources are available on Isaiah that might help the preacher with the problem described above. Commentaries which address textual, lexical, syntactical, and critical issues of the text are almost without exception non-dispensational. Most dispensational works, on the other hand, are either popular works like Ironside’s commentary or they are exegetically weak.... In the past year, 468 sermons in which Isaiah was the principal text were uploaded onto Sermon Audio’s website. Since approximately 6000 sermons were uploaded during that same period of time, sermons on Isaiah would account for nearly 8 percent of those preached. As previously noted, preachers frequently focus on familiar texts in Isaiah’s prophecy. Thus, homeleticians expounded Isaiah 6 thirty-one times, 7:14 eighteen times, 9:6 thirty times, and chapter 53 ninety- three times. In the majority of these sermons the overall message of Isaiah was not mentioned, although the historical context was sometimes addressed, especially in respect to chapters 6 and 7.

FOREWORD: If Isaiah is “The Prince of Prophets,” then the Book of Isaiah is the most majestic of all the books of prophecy. It has been our intention in these pages to direct the attention of the reader to the Person of the One who is both Saviour and Sovereign. We trust that there is something helpful in every comment on this magnificent prophecy. No attempt has been made to create an artistic production—rather our effort is to place tools in the hands of those who long to dig for treasure in the Word of God. This book is practical rather than poetic. It is geared to everyday living, not to the hypothetical theories of theologians.

Note: While MacRae seems to be generally conservative and evangelical, some of his comments on prophecy seem to be a bit far fetched and for lack of a better word "incongruous" with other comments he makes on similar phrases or descriptions. A healthy Berean attitude is in order to discern the wheat from the chaff. For example, see page 15 comments on Isa 2:2-4 and Isa 4:2-6 which almost all conservative evangelical ("literalistic") commentaries refers to the Millennium while MacRae does not.

As an aside, be aware that the majority of commentaries on Isaiah, ancient and modern, do not interpret Isaiah's prophecies literally, but spiritualize or allegorize passages that can clearly be read normally in a literal sense. One result is that many of the prophetic promises clearly directed literally to the nation of Israel are instead interpreted as promises now fulfilled to the Church (See What is replacement theology? and Allegorizing and Spiritualizing the Truth)

James Rosscup has this critique of MacRae's printed book "The Gospel of Isaiah": The President and Professor of Old Testament at Biblical School of Theology in Hatfield, PA wrote this. He was one of Dr. Robert Dick Wilson’s outstanding students. The work is not a commentary but a book elucidating themes in Isa 40:1–56:8, showing the interrelation of thoughts and the development of themes, based on the original Hebrew. The section has more verses cited in the New Testament than any other Old Testament passage of its length. Several portions of Handel’s Messiah came from here. The chapter on Cyrus as God’s instrument has many good insights, as do the discussions on Isaiah 40 and the several chapters on the Servant of the Lord in Isaiah 41–53, and the thoughts on chapters 54–56.

Jim Rosscup: This is one of the best older expositions of the book from a Hebrew scholar. There are frequent word studies; he deals with syntax; he has an original translation; his commentary is more detailed than most and is often helpful verse by verse. (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors)

Commentary on the book of the Prophet Isaiah - Volume 4

Rosscup's critique of John Calvin: A lucid amillennial commentary, in this reviewer’s judgment good but not as directly to the point and certainly not as recent as amillennial works by Leupold, Young, etc.

My Critique: Be cautious. Calvin does not interpret the text literally and as a result assigns to the Church the prophetic promises that in context were clearly given by God to His Chosen People, the nation of Israel. For example in his 4 volumes, Calvin uses the term "church" 1228 times and the term "Israel" only 515 times in a book clearly addressed by a Jewish prophet to Judah and Jerusalem and not the church (Isa 1:1, 2:1, etc is very clear as to the intended audience - to change it to the church is to spiritualize the text. Read Allegorizing and Spiritualizing the Truth)

Top 5 Commentaries on the Book of Isaiah by Keith Mathison - Ligonier Ministries - caveat - some listed do not interpret Isaiah literally!

Best Commentaries on Isaiah - Tim Challies - Caveat - Like Mathison above, he ranks Motyer the top commentary - see Rosscup below

James Rosscup: Motyer in this 594-pp. book draws on three decades of study in Isaiah to help readers by careful evangelical, exegetical work in grammar, word study, context, background, customs, and theology. He meets problems, not dodging them or putting a haze on them. He combines clarity with fresh and stimulating style and even an eye for relevancy today. He believes that Isaiah 7:14 refers to “the divine son of David” (86), defending this view and connecting the child with the mighty God in Isaiah 9:6–7. Characteristics of the work are discussion of issues and obvious broad adeptness in the scholarly literature about his subjects (cf. the footnotes on writings and problems). This work, despite Amillennial views on prophetical parts, which show blinders as to a true system in which God will fulfill details, has to rate as one of the top recent commentaries. Cf. also Motyer’s somewhat condensed work on Isaiah (408 smaller pp.). (Note from - "the fact that fulfilled prophecy was fulfilled literally is the best reason of all for assuming that unfulfilled prophecy will also be literally fulfilled. The prophecies concerning Christ's first coming were all fulfilled literally. Therefore, prophecies concerning Christ's second coming should also be expected to be fulfilled literally. For these reasons, an allegorical interpretation of unfulfilled prophecy should be rejected and a literal or normal interpretation of unfulfilled prophecy should be adopted. Amillennialism fails in that it uses inconsistent hermeneutics, namely, interpreting unfulfilled prophecy differently from fulfilled prophecy." Amillennialism)

James Rosscup: Among technical works for trained students who are able to grapple with and appreciate the Hebrew, this is one of the outstanding older linguistic commentaries on Isaiah. Delitzsch put great exegetical, historical and theological learning into the work, which is highly respected. In prophecy it is Amillennial.

Isaiah 66 Commentary

James Rosscup: This is in some ways a useful English exposition of the book, but offers no Hebrew help. It is quite thorough and pre-millennial and dispensational. Kelly usually tells the reader why he takes a certain view in the debated prophetical passages. A Plymouth Brethren author, he died in 1906.

Introduction to Isaiah - same intro that is found in his study Bible

Excerpt - Interpretive Challenges - Interpretive challenges in a long and significant book such as Isaiah are numerous. The most critical of them focuses on whether Isaiah’s prophecies will receive literal fulfillment or not, and on whether the Lord, in His program, has abandoned national Israel and permanently replaced the nation with the church, so that there is no future for national Israel. On the latter issue, numerous portions of Isaiah support the position that God has not replaced ethnic Israel with an alleged “new Israel.” Isaiah has too much to say about God’s faithfulness to Israel, that He would not reject the people whom He has created and chosen (Isaiah 43:1). The nation is on the palms of His hands, and Jerusalem’s walls are ever before His eyes (Isaiah 49:16). He is bound by His own Word to fulfill the promises He has made to bring them back to Himself and bless them in that future day (Isaiah 55:10–12). On the former issue, literal fulfillment of many of Isaiah’s prophecies has already occurred, as illustrated in Introduction: Historical and Theological Themes. To contend that those yet unfulfilled will see non-literal fulfillment is biblically groundless. This fact disqualifies the case for proposing that the church receives some of the promises made originally to Israel. The kingdom promised to David belongs to Israel, not the church. The future exaltation of Jerusalem will be on earth, not in heaven. Christ will reign personally on this earth as we know it, as well as in the new heavens and new earth (Rev. 22:1,3).

Isaiah - Reformation Study Bible - Bible Gateway

Be a Berean when using this resource as it does not always interpret passages literally, especially eschatological passages that have no clear historic fulfillment. For example notice how the RSB explains "mountain" in Isaiah 2:2:

"The prophet spoke of the Temple Mount as a metaphor for the Lord’s kingdom that will be exalted above all other kingdoms (cf. Isaiah 11:9; 65:25; 66:20). Mount Zion and the temple on it were symbols of heaven and the heavenly sanctuary (Heb 9:24). These earthly representations have passed away (Heb 8:13) (Ed Comment: Is that really a true statement? Pictures of modern day Jerusalem clearly demonstrate the persistence of Temple Mount - it has not passed away!); through the priesthood of the ascended Lord, the church comes directly to the heavenly reality (Heb 12:22–24)."

Comment on the RSB Comment - Observe first of all to whom the prophecy was directed in Isaiah 2:1 = "Judah and Jerusalem" and there is no allusion whatsoever to the "church." Notice how the RSB makes no mention of Judah as the recipient of the prophecy. The point is that the diligent student of Scripture who seeks to rightly divide the Word of Truth, must be very careful when using the study notes in the Reformation Study Bible. They are good on many passages and phrases, but one must be very careful when reading comments on prophecies that clearly have not yet been fulfilled. And remember - If many of Isaiah's prophecies have been literally fulfilled (e.g., the Scriptures describing Messiah in Isaiah 53 are a prime example) why would the other prophecies not also be literally fulfilled? The safest way to interpret the Scripture is to let the Word speak for itself and not try to spiritualize the text or allegorically interpret a passage that has future eschatological implications. That is not consistent hermeneutics and opens one up to the possibility of misinterpretation. (cf Acts 17:11)

Pulpit Commentary (PC)

This work, although generally conservative, is not listed as a recommended commentary for Isaiah because it has many comments that can lead to confusion especially if you believe the "safest" interpretation of Scripture is literal interpretation! A number of comments in the PC interpret Old Testament promises to Israel as being fulfilled in the Church. The PC mentions the "Church" some 827 times in the section on Isaiah despite the fact that the "Church" is not found in a literal reading of the Old Testament! There is only a single mention of the "millennium" in the PC (and even this comment on Isaiah 66 is not accurate) compared with 52 mentions of "millennium" in the highly respected Bible Knowledge Commentary. The importance of this fact is that the book of Isaiah is replete with direct and indirect allusions to a future time period which correlates well with the 1000 year period described by John in Revelation 20. If one interprets Isaiah's prophecies from an amillennial (no literal millennium) perspective, many chapters are difficult to understand, forcing one to resort to figurative interpretations. Click for several examples of non-literal interpretation in the Pulpit Commentary (on Isaiah 1:26, Isaiah 2:2, Isaiah 4:2-3, Isaiah 5:1, Isaiah 11:9)


John Calvin's Commentary is similar to the Pulpit Commentary and has some 1225 references to the "Church" in his comments on Isaiah! Calvin interprets many prophetic passages in Isaiah in a non-literal manner, interpreting many of the prophecies as referring to the Church rather than to Israel (see study of Israel of God). As an example, Calvin has a very confusing interpretation of Isaiah's great prophecy in chapter 2 in which God gives a promise of the future restoration of the kingdom of Israel, a prophecy which interpreted literally speaks of a future Millennial Kingdom. Calvin all but removes Israel from Isaiah 2 replacing it instead with references to the gospel and to the Church, making this beautiful promise to Israel almost unintelligible. Please do not misunderstand. John Calvin deserves great respect as a theologian for he was a "giant" in the Reformation, but like many of the reformers, his interpretation of the Old Testament and specifically OT prophecy is less than stellar.
