'Depart from Babylon': Observations on the Second Exodus in the Book of Deutero-Isaiah

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The author demonstrates that the promise of a new or second Exodus does not form an integral part of the original prophecy in the prophetic book. Rather, it is an important topic of the literary reinterpretation, and shows how biblical history finds its way into prophetic literature. As such, the motif contributes decisively to constitute the people’s identity as being the people of Yhwh.
