Life

The following is a translation of an early Bible passage. The passage was originally written about 700 years before Christ and the translation I am using is in the Jerusalem Bible. Was the passage referring to how Jesus healed people at his coming?

In a short time, a very short time,

shall not Lebanon become fertile land

and fertile land turn into forest?

The deaf, that day,

will hear the words of a book

and, after shadow and darkness,

the eyes of the blind will see.

But the lowly will rejoice in Yahweh even more

and the poorest exult in the Holy One of Israel.

(The Book of Isaiah chapter 29, verses 17-19; Jerusalem Bible)
