Show Summary Details


Investigates Deutero‐Isaiah's reasons for using more themes, images, and styles of expression from an earlier version of the Book of Isaiah than from any other Old Testament writing and considers the light shed by this on an understanding of the overall composition of the book. Discusses Isaiah of Jerusalem's references to the writing down of his message and his employment of witnesses and assesses the impact of these passages on Deutero‐Isaiah's understanding and description of his own continuation of the prophet's ‘ministry within the unfolding purposes of God’.
