Now remember that Isaiah has to be put back into the history that we have already read. The events in this book happened in the 8th Century. He spoke the prophecy’s of God from the death of King Uzziah through the reign of Hezekiah. It was a span of over 50 years! These were years of great turmoil and trouble for the kingdom of Judah as you will remember.
The whole first half of the book, through chapter 35, is about God’s judgments against his people and the surrounding nations. The book is in a problem/solution format. Hold on to your seatbelts because this one is going to be a bumpy ride.
