Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on three literary personae: the Servant, the authorial voice, and God. The chapter begins with the Servant, seeking to determine whether or not this figure represents a Judahite or an exilic person/ community outside of the text of Isa 40-55. It explores the first person sayings in Isa 40-55 that probably reflect the opinions of the prophetic authors of Isa 40-55 in order to investigate what these sayings tell about their location. The chapter looks at God in his position as the chief dramatic persona in Isa 40-55 in order to determine the geographical flavour of the theology found in the divine speeches. God. The three dramatic personae of God, the Servant and the prophet in Isa 40-55 shed some light upon the geographical provenance of Isa 40-55.
