Chapter Summary

This chapter forms the nucleus of the message contained in the book of Trito-Isaiah. They reproduce the message of a prophet of the period after the exile. They also form a literary unit. However, both the issues of the coherence of the material in chs 60-62 and the ascription of the bulk of this material to a prophetic figure have also received radically different treatments. Most recently, Steck has suggested that the "I" in ch. 61 is a prophet only if one assumes that the text has come about as an independent creation under the influence of DI. One of the striking features of this proposal is that there is no longer any room for the prophetic figure called Trito-Isaiah. Rather, what is often accepted as an account of a prophet's calling in ch. 61 is now understood to be a speech by Zion herself.
