Chapter Summary

The majority of the prophets and inspired messengers in the Book of Chronicles have been 'invented' by the Chronicler and should therefore be characterized as 'literary personages' rather than historical persons. Before answering the question regarding the way in which the Chronicler presents Isaiah and his book, needs a broad outline of the context in which this prophet is presented in the Book of Kings. Therefore, first of all a general overview of 2 Kings 18-20 are undertaken in this chapter, which is then compared with the characteristics of 2 Chronicles 29-32. By far the largest part of 2 Kings 18-20 has been devoted to the story dealing with the siege of Jerusalem by the Assyrian army, followed by the narrative relating to King Hezekiah's illness and the report dealing with the arrival of the Babylonian delegation.

Keywords: 2 Chronicles 29-32; 2 Kings 18-20; Isaiah; King Hezekiah
