Chapter Summary

This book offers a comparison between parts of First Isaiah and the Assyrian prophecies. In the comparative study of prophecy, placing a prophetic book at the centre of a comparative investigation is a new approach. This approach has recently been anticipated by scholars who have put forward the Assyrian prophecies, in particular the oracle collections, as the ancient Near Eastern counterpart to the prophetic books. The main purpose of the book is the comparison of the Isaiah tradition in its earliest form and the prophetic material from seventh-century Assyria. The exegetical assessment of the Isaiah tradition in the Assyrian period contains three main aspects: historical clues within First Isaiah; distinguishing between the profiles of the early material and the later reworking of the Isaiah tradition; and the early forms and format of the eighth-century prophetic and the seventh-century revision material.

Keywords: Assyrian prophecy; Isaiah; Israel; Judah; seventh-century Assyria
