A Redactional Study of the Book of Isaiah 13-23

Jongkyung Lee

Oxford Theology and Religion Monographs

  • Argues that a series of programmatic additions were made to the oracles concerning the nations in Isaiah 13-23 during the late-exilic period by the same circle of writers who were responsible for Isaiah 40-55
  • Explains that these additions were made to create continuity between the ancient oracles against the nations from the Isaiah tradition and the future fate of the same nations as the late-exilic redactor(s) foresaw
  • Shows that the additions portray a two-sided vision concerning the nations
