Isaiah After Exile

To further illuminate the author of Third Isaiah as a reader of the book, this chapter analyzes allusion and influence in Isaiah 65–66, finding these examples: the offer made in Isaiah 55:6–9 is seen as rejected by 65; the ‘former’ and ‘new things’ of Isaiah 40–55 are transformed by 65 into a ‘new heavens and earth’; Hezekiah's cry of distress and ‘sign’ of salvation in Isaiah 36–39 serve as a basis for salvation in 65–66; the royal reign in 11:6–9 is taken up by 65 in a description of the new world; the promise of children to barren Zion in 54 is reaffirmed by 66; the divine ‘glory’ in 40 is drawn upon by 66; those passages promising return from exile (Isaiah 11, 49, 62) influenced 66:18–24. From these examples it again emerges that the author of Third Isaiah reaffirmed the older Isaianic promises, but redefined who would enjoy them.
