ISAIAH
The Messianic
Prophet
Isaiah is the first of the major prophets in our Bible. It is probably more accurate for us to call
them the long-winded and the short-winded prophets, for the difference between the major and
minor prophets is acutally one of the length of their writing.

Insights into Isaiah

Isaiah prophecied for 40 years (740-700 B.C.) through the reigns of:

Uzziah (a.k.a. Azariah) -- 2 Kings 14:21; 2 Chronicles 26:1; Hosea 1:1; Amos 1:1

Jotham -- 2 Kings 15:7; 2 Chronicles 26:23; Hosea 1:1; Micah 1:1

Ahaz -- 2 Kings 16:1; 2 Chronicles 28:1; Hosea 1:1; Micah 1:1

Hezekiah -- 2 Kings 18:1-3; 2 Chronicles 29:1-2; Hosea 1:1; Micah 1:1

His prophetic contemporaries were: Hosea, Amos, Micah.

Preaching future plans to his own times summarizes his work.

His sons are named for his work:
    
    Shear-Jashub = "a remnant shall return" (7:3)

    Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz = "the spoil speeds, the prey hastes"  (8:3)

Those who deny that God inspired the writing of the Bible claim Isaiah is 2 books (ch. 1-39,
40-66) written by uninspired people (not Isaiah) after these prophesied events were history.

Those who deny that God inspired the writing of the Bible claim Isaiah is 2 books (ch. 1-39,
40-66) written by uninspired people (not Isaiah) after these prophesied events were history.

Jesus, however, quoted from both parts in John 12:37-41 claiming it was written by Isaiah
(53:1; 6:9-10). To deny that Isaiah was God inspired to write his book is to deny Jesus was
God-inspired to quote and teach from Isaiah"s book!

Isaiah is clearly a "Messianic" prophet.

The unnamed Jesus Christ is described by a not entirely human birth (Isaiah 7:14; 9:6), as the
child of deity (Isaiah 9:6-7), dying a substitutionary death (Isaiah 52:13-53:22), and ruling over
an eternal kingdom (Isaiah 2; Isaiah 11; Isaiah 65). With some 21 quotations from Isaiah in the
New Testament, he preached Christ before anyone knew to whom it applied!  -- John T. Polk, II
