Final Conclusions

This chapter concludes by summarizing the argument and addressing the following: It looks at the possibility that someone later than the author of Third Isaiah was responsible for the examples analyzed in the book (i.e., an imitator), arguing that, while this may explain other texts not covered here, it does not account for all of the evidence surveyed in the passages cited. Thus, the possibility remains in other passages for redactional intervention after the author of Third Isaiah, so that it becomes necessary to discuss the layer of redaction uncovered in this monograph in relation to the form of the book now before us, its final form. It is concluded (for various reasons) that the book now before us is not so different from the one made by the author of Third Isaiah. The chapter ends with some reflections on the shape given Isaiah and its hermeneutical effect.
