Chapter Summary

This book focuses on prophecy as a historical phenomenon by offering a comparison between parts of First Isaiah and the Assyrian prophecies. In the first part of the book the material from First Isaiah and from seventh-century Assyria is investigated in its own right, in order to create the conditions for a valid and fruitful comparison between parts of the book of Isaiah and the Assyrian prophecies. The second part contains a comparison of the Isaiah tradition in its earliest shape and the prophetic material from seventh-century Assyria. The comparison consists of three elements: the interrelation of prophetic oracles and historical events; the functions of the prophets; and the literary development of prophecy.

Keywords: Isaiah; Neo-Assyrian prophecies; prophets
