The Formation of Third Isaiah

The Formation of Third Isaiah

(p.11) 1 The Formation of Third Isaiah
Isaiah After Exile

Jacob Stromberg

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the formation of Third Isaiah, beginning with two areas of broad agreement: that chapters 60–62 form an early core of material in dependence on which much of the rest of Third Isaiah was later added; that 56:1–8 and 65–66 form a ‘frame’ around the whole, and stem from the hand responsible for Third Isaiah's final form. With these two points in place, the remaining material is examined, producing the following conclusions: that the lament in 63:7–64:11 is presupposed by, and therefore earlier than, the divine response in 65–66; that 56:9–59:21 can plausibly be ascribed to the hand behind 56:1–8 and 65–66, and therefore to Third Isaiah's latest layer; that the oracle against Edom in 63:1–6 is developed by, and therefore earlier than, 59:15–20. Thus, Isaiah 56:1–8 and 65–66 emerge as important texts for defining Third Isaiah's final form.
