Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on Zion-Jerusalem, the second dominant character of Isa 40-55. The chapter falls into two parts. As the persona of Zion-Jerusalem/Daughter Zion and the terms used to describe her has been the focus on much recent and diverse research to a much higher degree than Jacob-Israel, it is fitting to begin with a brief history of research. The focus on Zion-Jerusalem throughout much of Isa 40-55 is suggestive of a Judahite setting of the text; yet scholars have suggested this only sporadically and not in great detail. The chapter examines the texts that speak of or that speaks to Zion Jerusalem in Isa 40-55 and explores the associations that these verses raise. It investigates Zion-Jerusalem's speech in order to define her theology and, by extension, her geographical setting.

Keywords: Isa 40-55; Jacob-Israel; Judahite community; Zion-Jerusalem
