Isaiah

Author - Isaiah
Time - 740 - 690 B.C.

Summary - Isaiah ministered during the rule of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah. His primary focus was the coming judgement on the southern kingdom of Judah due to its great wickedness. Isaiah identified the root of Judahís trouble as its idolatry and apostasy. Although he spoke of judgements on other nations as well, he urged the kings and the people to put their trust in God rather than in alliances with earthly powers. He comforted his people with the realisation that God loves those who are faithful to Him and keep His commandments. He spoke of the future Messiah who would come to redeem the nation and restore the Kingdom.
