Abstract

As the conclusion to His great covenant speech, Jesus quoted Isaiah 54 in its entirety as a way of promising blessings to His people. Isaiah 54 begins by addressing a barren woman, telling her that one day the Lord will bless her with so many children that her tent could not hold them all. In Isaiah’s day, He was promising the war-torn Israelites that one day they would recover from their impoverished state and rise to become a great nation. In the Nephite's day, Christ was reassuring them that they would recover from the devastation of the destruction they experienced during the signs of His death.
