Chapter Summary

This chapter presents relation of the newness concepts in the Yhwh-Kingship psalms, Deutero-Isaiah and Trito-Isaiah. It establishes two lines of influence: roughly the one encompasses a cosmic-universal and the other an anthropological understanding of the change that was hoped for after Israel's exile. The chapter discusses on the relation between Jer. 30-31 and the book of Isaiah over three rounds, roughly cast as linguistic, literary and hermeneutic. In the literature on prophetic intertextuality, major emphasis is placed on the authority that the new text borrows from the old by citing from it, but equally as important is the service the new text renders to the old: to show how it is applicable to the present life. The chapter establishes a peculiar discrepancy between the tendency in twentieth century exegesis to curtail the word 'new' in Jer. 31:31 as much as possible, and these astounding authors of Jeremiah.
