Chapter Summary

Bernhard Duhm is a key figure in the study of Isa. 52:13-53:12. Two theses which are later especially related to his Isaiah studies are the thesis concerning a "Third Isaiah" and that concerning the "Servant Songs". Duhm's thesis about the "Servant Songs" is characterised by a historical-biographical interpretation of a Gottesknecht and his general emphasis on great men as driving forces in the evolution of the history of religion in Ancient Israel. The author have chosen the studies of the Book of Isaiah by Odil Hannes Steck as an illustration of a reception of Duhm's reading of Isa. 52:13-53:12. Traditional readings of Isa. 52:13-53:12 seem to have been preserved and legitimated more by biblical scholarship's own conventions than by any tenable methodological reflection on biblical exegesis.

Keywords: Bernhard Duhm; Isaiah; Odil Hannes Steck; Servant Songs
