The book of Isaiah is perhaps the most compelling of all Old Testament prophecy. No other prophet rivals Isaiah’s brilliance of style, powerful imagery and clear vision of the messianic hope. Isaiah’s prophetic ministry begins with his temple vision and calling: “I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send?’“ Through a series of oracles Isaiah calls Israel and the nations to turn to the Lord, for judgment is coming. He announces that redemption is found in the Davidic Servant alone. Finally, in the “day of vengeance and the year of redemption” the Anointed Conqueror will punish rebellious peoples, comfort the contrite and reestablish the glory of Zion.
