Chapter Summary

The understanding of the origins of the book of Isaiah (BI), such as it was accepted almost generally since B. Duhm (1892), has been undermined in the last decennia. The book is no longer considered as a compilation of three originally independent documents, Proto-Isaiah (PI), Deutero-Isaiah (DI) and Trito-Isaiah (TI), which have each individually undergone their own editorial history. The BI ends with a series of three epilogues: one to TI itself (lxvi 7-14), one to DI and TI together (lxvi 15-20[21]), and one to the whole book (lxvi 22-3[24]). Although these epilogues are marked off by proper boundaries, they form not only a series with a common style and one perspective, but even a coherent text complex. As the book draws to its close, the outlook of the prophetic literature enlarges so as to embrace the three Isaiah into one expectation of God's final act with regard to Zion.

Keywords: book of lsaiah (BI); Deutero-Isaiah (DI); Proto-Isaiah (PI); Trito-Isaiah (TI)
