Chapter Summary

This chapter provides texts that may have a bearing on the Samaritan attitude to prophets and the books of the prophets. This chapter also focuses on Isaiah, son of Amoz, with the other prophets, Micah, the aged Ananias, Joel, and Habakkuk. The Book of Isaiah presents us with judgment oracles against Jerusalem because of her sins, but it also contains Zion-theology, a positive assertion of the status of the city. The viewpoint of Melcheira is that Isaiah only had judgment oracles against Jerusalem and Judah, but this neglects the Zion theology presented in the Book of Isaiah. Their attitude expressed itself in emphasizing the negative view of Jerusalem and Judah, which is also found in the book of Isaiah.

Keywords: Isaiah; Jerusalem; Judah; Melcheira; PROPHETS; SAMARITAN ATTITUDE; Zion-theology
