Around 700 BC, Assyria began its rise, taking over smaller countries around Israel. In 712 BC this happened in Israel; Assyria brought in non-Jewish people who mixed with the remaining Jews, resulting in religious syncretism, intermarriage, etc. to the point where they began to lose their identity. This is the backdrop to Isaiah. We’ll look at two main stories from the time of Isaiah, and how two kings respond to this type of threat in different ways, based on a word from God through his prophet Isaiah.
Scripture: Isaiah 7-8, 36-37
