(p.1) Introduction
Isaiah After Exile

Jacob Stromberg

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter outlines two positions suggesting the author of Third Isaiah redacted the book. First, most recognize that Isaiah 56–66 alludes to older material in the book, suggesting it was never independent of 1–55. If so, and since the allusions also imply the author of Third Isaiah pored over this earlier material as a reader, the possibility emerges that he may also have adopted a role as a redactor. Second, many now find texts throughout Isaiah best explained as having been composed, or edited, in light of Third Isaiah. Thus, the first position raises the possibility of redaction from this quarter of the book; and the second suggests there may be positive evidence for it. Since it is only natural to expect the work of a redactor to reflect his reading of the sources, the approach employed analyzes the one to guide in its inquiry of the other.
