Chapter Summary

This chapter turns the issue around: are there aspects of Isa 40-55 that actually suggest a Judahite setting? It has been noted from time to time that several passages in Isa 40-55 betray a Judahite perspective, or that they would make the most sense if they addressed a Judahite audience. The chapter revisits these passages in order to determine whether or not they contain a geographical perspective. It first examines nine passages in Isa 40-55 that contain spatial connotations. The chapter then looks at three passages that refer to sacrifices and/or to the temple and discusses whether these references tell anything about their geographical setting. It should, however, be conceded that the evidence in these passages is at best circumstantial and/or implicit.
