Saint Isaiah ~ A Great Prophet

Saint Isaiah was among the prophets that Michelangelo chose to paint in the Sistine Chapel. 

Isaiah stressed the importance of putting great trust in God.  He also foretold of the coming of Christ ... yet he lived about 700 years before Jesus was born!

But a shoot shall sprout from the
     stump of Jesse,
and from his roots a bud
     shall blossom.
  - Isaiah 11:1
