Show Summary Details


Considers the content and historical background of Isaiah Chs. 28–39, which describe political events from the time of Isaiah of Jerusalem and include the so‐called ‘woe!’ oracles. Assesses evidence for the dating of these chapters and discusses research by scholars including P.R. Ackroyd, K.A.D. Smelik, J.W. Groves and E.W. Conrad into the literary links between this section and earlier chapters of the book and the reasons for its present positioning in the book of Isaiah. Compares Chs. 36–39 with 2 Kings 18–20, considering their relevance to the investigation of literary dependence in the versions of Isaiah, and continues the examination of evidence for Deutero‐Isaianic intervention and its effect on the overall composition of the book.
