Prophecy- Prediction

1. Multiple choice: King Ahaz feared Syria and Ephraim, but Isaiah told him the real enemy would be:
(a)Egypt; (b) Assyria; or (c) Persia.

2. Who had a son whose infancy set the timetable for Assyria's defeat of Samaria? (a) King Uzziah; (b) Hosea; or (c) Isaiah.

3. What two northern tribes of Israel did Isaiah predict would see a great light when the Messiah would come? (a) Dan and Asher; (b) Zebulun and Naphtali;or (c) Issachar and Manasseh.

1. (b) Assyria (Is. 7:17 )

2. (c) Isaiah (Is. 8:3, 4). This child bore the awkward name Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz, which ment
"Speed the Spoil, Hasten the Booty".

3. (b) Zebulun and Naphtali Is. 9:1). These two tribes were called "Galilee of the Gentiles" because of the numbers of Canaanites around and within their border.
