Isaiah - Sistine Chapel Ceiling - Michelangelo

We just learned about Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel painting about Noah's drunkenness.

This was the last of the 9 paintings about things from the old testament that Michelangelo painted.

Another part of the Sisteine Chapel ceiling was 12 paintings of Prophets who talked about Jesus before he came along.

One of the paintings was of the prophet Isaiah.

Michelangelo painted Isaiah to look young, but very thoughtful, and he is holding a book.
Isaiah was one of the most famous prophets from the Bible has many writings that people believe were prophecies about Jesus coming some day.
