Chapter Summary

This chapter is devoted to understanding, each of Philo’s citations from Latter Prophets, including a traditional Haftarah Cycle. Some of the references listed by Colson and Earp turnout to be cases of mistaken identification, author includes all of the instances that have been considered by scholarship to stem from Latter Prophets, since this had to be proven in each instance. With single exception of prophet Jeremiah who is mentioned by name, as in the case of Pentateuch, the unit of reference in Philo’s oeuvre is ‘The Prophets’ and not one or another of the books of prophets. Four out of five citations from Isaiah are found in one of the special Haftarot of Admonition, Consolation, and Repentance recited between 17th of Tammuz and The Day of Atonement. Philo offers an additional allegorical midrashic vignette from a different source, one whose point of departure must have been the Septuagint text.
