Isaiah's prophetic ministry spanned the reign of 4 kings of Judah and covered at least 40 years.

Yesha 'yaha, or Yeshaiah means "Yahweh Is Salvation".

Isaiah is known as the St. Paul of the Old Testament. He was evidently from a distinguished Jewish family. His education is quite evident in his impressive vocabulary adn style, shown in his book, Isaiah. He maintained close contact with the royal court. he was a great poet and prophet. He was uncompromising, sincere, and compassionate. His wife was a prophetess and he had at least 2 sons.

His ministry ranged from about 740-680B.C.

When Isaiah speaks about Christ, he sounds more like a New Testement writer than an Old Testament prophet. His Messianic prophecies are clearer and more explicit than in anyother Old Testament book.

He spent most of his time in Jerusalem, and talmudic tradition says his persecutors sawed him in two during the reign of Manassah (Heb. 11:37)
