The Book of Isaiah is the first of the Latter Prophets in the Hebrew Bible, preceding Ezekiel, and Jeremiah. The first 39 chapters prophesy doom for a sinful Judah and for all the nations of the world that oppose God, while the last 27 prophesy the restoration of the nation of Israel and a new creation in God’s glorious future kingdom.

The prophet Isaiah, whose name means “Jehovah is salvation,” was the son of Amoz (Isaiah 1:1), not to be confused with the prophet Amos. He prophesied during the reign of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah. During the span of Isaiah’s ministry, Judah underwent great periods of change. His call came in the last year of King Uzziah’s reign, about 740 BC. Uzziah was, generally speaking, a good king and had brought to Judah a degree of wealth and power which she had not known since the time of Solomon. With these accomplishments, however, came sin, corruption, oppression and religious formalism. While gaining materially, Judah had deteriorated spiritually. Uzziah was succeeded by his son Jotham, who also sought to encourage the worship of Jehovah but who failed, as had his father, to break down the high places of idolatrous worship. Ahaz followed Jotham and set about to replace the true worship with devotion to heathen idols.
