Chapter Summary

There has been a long tradition of connecting Jeremiah with the suffering servant in Deutero-Isaiah, both in Jewish and Christian tradition. This chapter looks afresh at the servant songs to seek to understand why this suggestion was made. The chapter essentially deals here with parallels between two texts that are now in their final form, so that in that sense it is a literary analysis. It believes that there are echoes of Jeremiah in the text and it divides the analysis of the relevant passages into two categories: the first, passages with verbal thematic connections; second, passages with links to Jeremiah's life and thought. The songs are found in Isa. 42:1-4; 49:1-6; 50:4-9; 52:13-53:12. It also looks at other connections between the two texts outside the servant songs, notably at the technique of the reversal of motifs that has been found between the two.
