Chapter Summary

This chapter sets aside the cosmic dimensions to which the word 'new' has led us as we followed the route Psalms→Deutero-Isaiah→Trito-Isaiah. It presents the anthropological conceptions to which Ezekiel and Jeremiah connect the word conceptions that stand at the cradle of the evidently alluring idea of 'the new man'. A comparison between these anthropological and cosmological lines will be more meaningful once we have gained a clear picture of the relation between Ezekiel's and Jeremiah's relevant passages. The difference between the terms seems visible in the effortless progression from 'a new spirit' to 'my spirit'; a similar mental jump from 'a new heart' into a direct relationship with God is more difficult to make. As verification that Israel's historical collapse was indeed the consequence of its own impurity and not Yhwh's impotence, a failed onslaught of the nations on the cleansed Israel is the most logical test case.

Keywords: Deutero-Isaiah; Ezekiel; Israel's history; Jeremiah; new spirit; Psalms; Trito-Isaiah
