The book of Isaiah is one of the longest and most complex prophetic works in the Hebrew Bible (Christian Old Testament). Probably composed in stages by different individuals or groups of individuals, the oldest section traces back to Isaiah ben Amoz, who lived in the eighth century BCE. The book contains what many consider to be the oldest clear statement of monotheism and also promises the coming of a Kingdom under a messiah.

Many peoples, throughout the millennia, have interpreted the prophetic passages many ways. The Bahá’í Faith offers new interpretations of some of the passages in Isaiah, and Bahá’ís infer other interpretations. In Exploring the Book of Isaiah we will undertake a careful reading of the text to understand its historical nature and to put Bahá’í interpretations in an historical context.
