This presentation on Isaiah enriches the presentations on the Exile and Return ( Volume 2, pg. 135) and the Prophets (Volume 2, pg. 143). the meditation of the 8th-century prophet Isiah on the destiny of Jerusalem left a tradition of prophecy in his name. Chapters 1-29 of the book of Isaiah are now often called First Isaiah. This is a meditation on the crisis of pre-exilic Jerusalem in the years 742-701 B.C.E Second Isiah is in chapters 40-55. This takes place about 540 B.C.E. It tells of the hope for a return to Jerusalem from exile. Chapters 56-66 are called Third Isaiah. Its apparent context is after the return to and restoration of Jerusalem that was anticipated in Second Isaiah.
