Best Answer

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.

Where did isaiah prophesy?

Isaiah 1:1 introduces the book as the work of Isaiah, son of Amoz, who lived in Judah during the reigns of the Judahite kings Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah, early in the seventh century BCE. The author of this verse makes no claim to live during the time of the Babylonian Exile.The Book of Isaiah then omits the 150 year period from Hezekiah to the fall of Jerusalem and recommences with the Babylonian Exile. Chapters 40-55 of the Book of Isaiah were written by an anonymous author in Babylon in the middle of the sixth century BCE. The last chapters of what is now the Book of Isaiah were written back in Jerusalem by another anonymous author.The three different authors of the Book of Isaiah are sometimes known as First Isaiah (I Isaiah), Second Isaiah (II Isaiah) and Third Isaiah (III Isaiah), respectively. It appears that the works of Second Isaiah and Third Isaiah were originally separate books, but were subsequently added to the Book of Isaiah.


Where did Isaiah live?

According to some scholars, the Book of Isaiah was a composite work by authors now known as I Isaiah and II Isaiah, whose lives and experiences were separated by many decades. Isaiah 1:1 introduces the book as the work of Isaiah, son of Amoz, who lived in the reigns of the Judahite kings Uzziah, Jotham, Ahaz and Hezekiah. 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. The anonymous author of this work is generally referred to as Second Isaiah. He would have lived, in exile, in or near Babylon.
