Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on a thorough critique of the source-critical conclusions of previous scholarly approaches to the Hezekiah- Sennacherib narrative. In evaluating the arguments for the Stade-Childs hypothesis, an initial critique will be included with these arguments rather than presented in a separate fashion. Attention to weaknesses in these areas paves the way for the new fresh source-critical analysis, which follows source-critical methodology in an effort to produce an example of source criticism that does not suffer from the same shortcomings. Many scholars have perceived divergent perspectives within the different putative accounts posited by the Stade-Childs hypothesis. Variations in the characterizations of both Hezekiah and Isaiah in the Hezekiah-Sennacherib narrative have often been seen to support the Stade-Childs hypothesis. Arguments based on stylistic differences, divergent perspectives and characterizations did not stand up to scrutiny. The chapter concludes with an evaluation of this fresh analysis.

Keywords: Hezekiah- Sennacherib narrative; source-critical analysis; Stade-Childs hypothesis
