This talk focuses primarily on 2nd Isaiah, Chapters 40–55. But it also offers a brief overview of the important historical setting and military conditions underlying the “bookends,” 1st Isaiah and 3rd Isaiah.
The book of Isaiah was probably written by three different authors over three centuries. Its poetry and prose is some of the most majestic and loved of the entire Bible. Yet it is Isaiah’s message of hope, comfort, and joy that makes it one of the Old Testament’s most loved-by-us and familiar-to-us texts.
This talk provides the background, history, and context that allow us to understand the circumstances of each author of the book of Isaiah. And it helps us grasp how changes in geography and rulers provide the context for the middle chapters (40–55), which focus on the Messiah’s coming.
