February 9, 2009A Note From the Author:Thank you for taking an interest in and reading my exegetical analysis of Isaiah6:1-13 and I hope you will find the research and contextual exploration helpful in your understanding and reading. I’m an academic at heart and a thinker by nature, so detailedanalysis of Scripture is truly enriching not just to my mind but also to my spirit. Hebrew4:12 says, “For the Word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edgedsword, and piercing as far as the division of soul and spirit, of both joints and marrow,and able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (NASB). While the historicaland concordant information may be interesting to you, don’t allow this read to just be anintellectual and theological exercise. To conclude the exegetical analysis, I have includeda “Significance” section that sums up the information and explores the possiblehermeneutical or practical applications of this section of Scripture. The Bible is dividedup into 66 books, 1,189 chapters, and 31,173 verses, but it is one great story of God’screation and redemptions of humanity and Isaiah’s story is just one part of the greater story.For those that may be interested or curious, footnotes and formatting are inadherence with Turabian’s
 A Manual for Writers of Term Papers, Theses, and  Dissertations.
I hope you enjoy and benefit from this analysis and I am always open tothoughts, questions, and suggestions.

Setting
Biblical ContextIsaiah’s prophecy and prophetic ministry are the inspiration and heart of the book which bears his name as the title. Isaiah and his ministry found unique significance at a pivotal point in the history of God’s people. Positioned between the ministries of Mosesand Christ, a transition was taking place and Israel was about to learn that their salvationcould not be obtained by reliance on man but only from God Himself .

A new era had begun, removing the old order of tribal confederacy and thekingdoms that came as a result to the old order, into a dispersion that would open thedoor for a return to Zion, the city where Yahweh dwells.
2
Isaiah’s ministry and prophetic book bears witness to Yahweh’s plan and word to His people throughout 12 generations,each generation’s response, and His divine perspective of the history of Israel and Judah.
3
AuthorshipWhat little we know about the person of Isaiah mostly comes from the prophetic book named after him. Isaiah, whose name means, “The Lord is salvation,” was aneighth-century BC prophet and son of Amoz. He grew up in Jerusalem, received the best

Isaiah’s close contact with several kings, his access to the court, andgreat concern with the issue of leadership have led some to believe that he may have beenof royal family or even related to King Uzziah.
5
 As to the authorship of the book, there is great debate. Young states that “The prophet Isaiah himself was the author of the entire book; he himself committed it all towriting and he was responsible for collecting his messages and placing them in the present book which bears his name.”
6
Elwell and Comfort claim that chapters 1-39 took  place during Isaiah’s ministry of about 750-700 BC and chapters 40-66 were writtenduring his retirement years.

However, Goldingay examines the name of the book, whichis often called the “Book of Isaiah,” implying his authorship and agreeing with the NIVwhich correctly renders just “Isaiah,” linking him and his ministry to the work but notsuggesting his partial or complete authorship.
8
Watts takes it another step further and breaks down the major sections of the book into the possible authors: Chapters 1-35 toIsaiah; chapters 36-39 to an individual who used 2 Kings 17-20:19 as a resource; chapters40-55 to individuals during the Exile and restoration periods; chapters 55-66 to thereturned community in Palestine. I believe tradition, in combination to the historicalevidence we have today, is correct in giving complete authorship to Isaiah. While
