Today we commemorate Isaiah. Isaiah, son of Amoz, numbers amongst the greatest of the Old Testament prophets, and is quoted more than any other in the New Testament. A contemporary of Amos, Hosea, and Micah, Isaiah prophesied to the people of Judah between about 740 and 700 BC. No Old Testament prophet more clearly prophesied about the coming of the Messiah and His Kingdom. In the words of John, Isaiah ‘saw Jesus’ glory and spoke of Him’.
