Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter of provides an overview of the key concepts discussed in this book Newness in Old Testament Prophecy: An Intertextual Study. the book introduces the subject 'newness' in relation to previous scholarship and offers some methodological considerations. The book deals with newness in the Psalms on Yhwh's Kingship, Deutero-Isaiah and Trito-Isaiah. Intertextuality refers to the ability of texts to be connected to other texts and in this way to be drawn into the 'quasi world' of literature. Concepts and terminology occurring frequently in intertextual studies include: point of connection ('Berührung'); influence; borrowing; reference; allusion; echo; and citation. The concept borrowing also reflects on the author's role and the manner in which the work was constructed. The book describes the literary relations between texts dealing with newness in the prophetic tradition in order to understand their relationship as the realisation of an intertextual dialogue.

Keywords: Deutero- Isaiah; Old Testament prophecy; Psalms; Trito-Isaiah; Yhwh's Kingship
