His wife was | |a prophetess (Isaiah 8:3), probably in the sense that she was married to a prophet; we have no record that she prophesied herself. Isaiah | |also trained a group of disciples who gathered around him (Isaiah 8:16). | | | |According to Oswalt, T. (1974), the prophet had a very broad appreciation of the political situation in which he lived. He demonstrated | |awareness of all the nations around his homeland. Judah and Jerusalem were the focal points of his prophecies, but he saw God's will for | |them down the corridors of time, as well as in his own day. He saw that the kingdom that God would establish through His Messiah would | |include all people. He was a true patriot who denounced evils in his land, as well as giving credit where it was due. He condemned | |religious cults yet remained neutral politically. His understanding of theology was profound. He set forth the wonder and grandeur of | |Yahweh more ably than any other biblical writer. As a writer, Isaiah without a peer among the Old Testament prophets. |
