The '''Holy Prophet Isaiah''' lived 700 years before the birth of [[Christ]], and was of royal lineage. The name "Isaiah" is a Hebrew name (pronounced Yeshayahu) which means "Yah (the Lord) is salvation". Isaiah's father Amos raised his son in the fear of God and in the law of the Lord. Having attained the age of maturity, the [[Prophet]] Isaiah entered into marriage with a pious prophetess ([[Editing Book of Isaiah|Is]] 8:3) and had a son Jashub (Is 8:18).
