Chapter Summary

The bulk of the material in Isa. 56-66 belongs to two distinct levels of work. First, the work of Trito-Isaiah, who was responsible for most of 60:1- 63:6, and was active in the early post-exilic period. Second, the work of a second author, TI2, to whom we should ascribe 56:1-8; 56:9-57:21; 58:1- 59:20; 65:1-66:17. In this way we have demonstrated that the material in the chapters manifests a greater degree of coherence than many theories of multiple authorship and redaction-critical schemes have suggested. This section, along with 59:21, was probably written in the mid-fifth century at the earliest. As has already been suggested in the introduction, this study constitutes only the first stage in the analysis of Isaiah 56-66. Further traditio-historical and redaction-critical work is required in order to fully understand the nature of the material in these chapters and its place within the book of Isaiah as a whole.

Keywords: book of Isaiah; Isaiah 56-66; redaction-critical work
