The prophet Isaiah has been identified as the prophet who stands at the head of “The Prophets” – that third great section of the Old Testament. Eerdman’s Handbook of the Bible states that “there is nothing to equal Isaiah’s tremendous vision of God and the glory in store for God’s people.” (See page 380)
