  • The Influence Of Isaiah

    Introduction Isaiah, son of Amoz, was a prophet of Yahweh whose revelations to the nation of Judah are accepted as part of the biblical canon in the Old Testament. Isaiah was both a husband, and a father of at least two sons; Shear-Jashub and Maher-Shalal-Hash-Baz (Isaiah 8:3-4). Isaiah was commissioned by the Lord and served Yahweh faithfully as a prophet from approximately 740 B.C.- 700 B.C. Isaiah’s ministry officially began after his vision of the Throne Room of God in Isaiah 6, towards the end of Uzziah’s reign. Here, he witnesses two Seraphim shouting praises unto The Lord.

In today’s culture this view is again reoriented in that many Christians alone see this passage to be a prophecy of the ministry in which Jesus Christ will walk. When looking into the passage, Christians see the ‘servant’ as Jesus, and his suffering for our sins, and the sacrifice he made for us.…
