What does Isaiah call Cyrus? Why is that significant?

This is for my World Civilizations class and I am needing help knowing how to answer.
"Read Ezra 1:1-8. Cyrus the Great allows the Jewish captives from the Babylonian captivity to go back to Jerusalem and rebuild their temple. Read Isaiah 44:18-45:1. What does Isaiah call Cyrus? Why is that significant?"

Mark M.

Did you read the two selections?

I did read them but I cannot figure out why what Isaiah calls Cyrus is significant.
