Biblical Character
    Born in Jerusalem, Kingdom of Judah
    Lived circa 800-700 BC
    Name translates as ‘Salvation of God’ in Hebrew
    Acted as prophet for four Judean kings: Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah
    Subject of Book of Isaiah, part of the Christian Old Testament and the Jewish Torah
    Virtually nothing is known of his mother or childhood.
    He is sometimes wrongly thought to be the son of the prophet Amos.
    He constantly slammed the Judean people for their sin and lack of faith.
    He condemned the Judean kings for forming military alliances against enemies rather than simply relying on God.
    He said threats from hostile states were warnings from God.
    He gave his son a name that translates as ‘Spoil quickly, plunder speedily.’
    He prophesized the birth of Jesus Christ to a virgin.
    He is referred to more in the New Testament than any other Old Testament prophet.
    He frequently rebuked the aristocracy for living lavishly and ignoring the poor.
    His prophecy that Judah would suffer oppression if it depended on alliances proved true.
    He was well regarded by the four kings he served under and prophesized for 44 years.
    Hezekiah’s successor turned against him, and he may have had a grisly death when the tree he was hiding in was chopped down.
