The prophet Isaiah's time can be fixed by reference to the reigns of the Kings in which he prophesied.

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.

Thus the first period of his ministry was during the reigns of Uzziah 792-740 BC and Jotham 750-738 (as regent) and 738-732 as ruler. Isaiah's second period of work began in the reign of Ahaz from 735 - 715 and continued into the fifteenth year of Hezekiah's rule, after which he retired from public ministry.

Because there were two authors of the book, this Isaiah is generally referred to as I Isaiah or First Isaiah. He would have lived in Jerusalem. The Book of Isaiah omits the 150 year period from Hezekiah to the fall of Jerusalem and recommences with the Babylonian Exile.

AnswerSome scholars say that the Book of Isaiah was written by two authors, now known as First Isaiah and Second Isaiah. Others, possibly a minority, say that there were three authors, and add Third Isaiah as well. First Isaiah, whom we know as the Isaiah who signed his work in verse 1:1, wrote during the reigns of Kings Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah of Judah. This places First Isaiah around 2,700 years ago.There was then a break of over a hundred years before an anonymous author, now known as Second Isaiah decided to add new material to the by-then ancient book, during the Babylonian Exile. Whether he is the same author who continued to write during the early years after the Return from Exile is uncertain. Overall, Second Isaiah (and Third Isaiah) wrote for some decades, but the total is open to debate. They lived around 2,500 years ago.
