We just finished a bit of a deep dive into King Ahaz in Judah, now the Blue Letter Bible Bible Chronological reading list is having us read about King Hoshea in Israel before we return to Isaiah.

Some of these chapters may look familiar if you are familiar with my site, but we're in that portion of reading chronologically, that the kings and prophets don't cleanly connect; they overlap. So one more stop here and then deep into Isaiah.

Isaiah is prophesying about the final demise of Israel as a warning to Judah.

I'm tracking the kings and prophets through the last days of the Israel and, soon after, Judah.

Previously, I read about Isaiah and his relationship with Ahaz in the context of II Kings and II Chronicles. This is why the chronological approach has been helpful to me. I wouldn't have remembered the exact context when reading these books separately. Next we see the early manifestation of Isaiah's prophesy.

As Israel and, eventually, Judah race toward oblivion for life as they've known it, the Kings and Chronicles give way to prophets who seem to be God's final effort to turn their trajectories toward His will and away from their idolatry and rebellion.

In my attempt to read chronologically, one of my reading plans says Amos is next and the other says Isaiah. So I have decided to start with Isaiah. Although I'll start Amos after Isaiah 8, and will keep checking in with the Kings and Chronicler.
