Bible Commentary: Introduction to Isaiah

Isaiah prophesied during the reigns of the kings of Judah Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, from around 740 B.C. to at least 681 B.C.. The breadth of content in Isaiah is breathtaking – he prophesies concerning the grace of God through judgement for pre-exile Judah; concerning comfort for his people exiled in Babylon; and concerning God preparing his people for his work in the future for his glory (48:9-11). Ultimately, God will fulfill his promises to his people: grace and endless joy through the promised Messiah.
