 {{:​isaiah.jpg?​300 |}}Isaiah 1:1, "The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah."​ The book of Isaiah was written by the prophet Isaiah. What do we know about Isaiah? He was the son of Amoz. Isaiah was a prophet. He was married to a prophetess. Isaiah 8:3 (KJV), "And I went unto the prophetess; and she conceived, and bare a son. Then said the Lord to me, Call his name Mahershalalhashbaz."​ According to this verse, we see that Isaiah has a son named, Mahershalalhashbaz. Looking back to chapter 7:3 (KJV), "Then said the Lord unto Isaiah, Go forth now to meet Ahaz, thou, and Shearjashub thy son..."​ In this verse we find another son of Isaiah, Shearjashub. One other time, Isaiah and his family are mentioned. This is in Isaiah 8:18 (KJV), "​Behold,​ I and the children whom the Lord hath given me are for signs and for wonders in Israel from the Lord of hosts, which dwelleth in mount Zion." Isaiah and his sons would be for signs and wonders in Israel. {{:​isaiah.jpg?​300 |}}Isaiah 1:1, "The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah."​ The book of Isaiah was written by the prophet Isaiah.

 Isaiah warns of the judgment from God on the tribe of Judah, yet God's people will be cleansed. In chapter five, there is a lesson about a vineyard. This tells a story that God's people are to bear fruit. "​Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them." (Matthew 7:20 KJV) Judah was not known for good fruit. These sins became a burden for Judah. Some sins people continue day to day and refuse to repent. These become heavy loads that wear the sinner down. God calls Isaiah to warn Judah. "Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me." (Isaiah 6:8 KJV) This verse shows us that Isaiah was a man that God called, and he was willing to go. //He said, Here I am, send me//. What great words spoken by the prophet Isaiah! He was a man that was dependable and willing to do our heavenly Father'​s will. Isaiah warns of the judgment from God on the tribe of Judah, yet God's people will be cleansed.

-Just when we think there is no hope,  in chapter 9, we see that a child is born. Jesus who will redeem his people from their sins. In chapter 12, we have a hymn of praise when Jesus comes to reign. In chapter 13, the Lord will punish the world for their sins and Babylon will be overthrown. In the next several chapters, we see prophecy against Moab, Syria, Ethiopia, Egypt, Babylon, Edom, Arabia, Tyre, Samaria, Jerusalem, and against rebels. We see God's judgment on the land. In chapter 25-26, we see the people praise the Lord and and sing to God. God will destroy his enemies. Looking faithfully to the promises in Isaiah, we see in the last half of the book that God will feed his flock; He will help Israel; He will send a Savior and there is no other; Jehovah is the one true God; The Lord will rescue his people; Israel will be rebuilt; Blessings for those who seek him; the godly shall rest in peace; promises of glory for God's people; the new heavens and the new earth; and lastly, the world will see God's goodness.

 As you can see this theory has a very different idea about the author of Isaiah. What I see is that this theory does not take into consideration that these are prophecies given by a God who knows all things. There are specific details that this theory can only explain by a different author who wrote these chapters after they already took place. ​ As you can see this theory has a very different idea about the author of Isaiah.
