Themes in Isaiah:
An overriding theme in Isaiah is the plea for God’s people to “wait upon Jehovah”
Purpose of Writing:
The Prophet Isaiah was primarily called to prophesy to the Kingdom of Judah. Judah was going through times of revival and times of rebellion. Judah was threatened with destruction by Assyria and Egypt, but was spared because of God’s mercy. Isaiah proclaimed a message of repentance from sin and hopeful expectation of God’s deliverance in the future.
