Isaiah: An Introduction. Chapters 1 - 9. Isaiah (“Yahweh is salvation”) was a prophet called by the Lord to speak to the Southern Kingdom of Judah. He was called by God the year that King Uzziah died. He spent most of his life in Jerusalem.
Chapters 1 - 9
Isaiah’s vision and calling by the Lord highlight the four repeated themes of the book of Isaiah:
God’s Holiness (How was this described?)
Judah’s Sinfulness (What made Isaiah cry out?)
God’s Forgiveness (How did God respond to Isaiah?)
God’s Call to Preach (Notice the timing here!)
