Chapters 36-39: (Isaiah)
Hezekiah and the Enemy
Warnings and Judgment, Coming Restoration
Chapters 40-66: (Isaiah)
Promises of Messiah, Salvation, Eternal Glory
Isaiah was used by God to bring forth important revelation about the coming Messiah, the Deliverer of Israel. What is the best description about the fulfillment of those prophecies:
The Deliverer spoken of in Isaiah brought great encouragement to the people because it spoke of a soon-coming ruler/s, who would bring varying levels of freedom and restoration to the people in the time of the Old Testament. Those rulers came and helped God’s people, but then they died without fulfilling the full scope of the prophecies Isaiah gave. This pointed to a yet-to-come fulfillment, and a promised future ruler, Jesus, who was to come long after their time. Jesus came and fulfilled much of the suffering servant prophecies, but has not yet fulfilled all of the prophecies about a conquering ruler.
