German scholarship for the layperson Aug 8, 2007
The first 12 chapters of Isaiah form a natural unit and contain some of the most important material in the book. Here is the account of the prophet's call and his activity in the Syro-Ephraimitic war of 735, together with a number of early oracles. A verse by verse commentary is provided. Explores what little is known about the prophet as a person -- a citizen with a farm and a father named Amoz (not to be confused with the prophet Amos).
