Description:

Scholars have traditionally identified two fundamental and somewhat separate discourses in Isaiah 1â€"39. In what might be labelled the social-critical discourse, we supposedly encounter a prophet who condemns the Jerusalemite elite for their complacent attitudes and decadent life-style in general, and for their more or less systematic oppression of the less fortunate in particular. This lack of social justice, Isaiah emphasises, will indeed be punished by YHWH. In the discourse that might preferably be labelled foreign-political, scholars have found that the prophet repeatedly discourages Judahite participation in anti-Assyrian rebellions, because these strategies are offensive to YHWH and their plans will therefore come to nothing.Olof Bäckersten presents an attempt to question the existence of a social-critical discourse in Isaiah 1â€"39. He argues that the texts that have been proffered as proofs for a discourse of this sort relate instead, with surprisingly few although notable exceptions, to the critique of Judah's anti-Assyrian policy. The result of this investigation has implications for our understanding of the book of Isaiah as a whole. A social-critical emphasis can only be detected in Isaiah 1 and Isaiah 56â€"66, whereas Isaiah 2â€"39(55) provides variations on a foreign-political theme in the sense that the focus falls on the relationship between nations in general and Judah's position on the international arena in particular.

Book Description Mohr Siebeck Gmbh & Co. K Mai 2008, 2008. Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Olof Bäckersten presents an attempt to call into question the scholarly consensus that Isaiah 1-39 contains a social-critical discourse, i.e. passages where the Jerusalemite elite is condemned for their complacent attitudes, their decadent life-style, and their more or less systematic oppression of the poor. He argues that the texts that have been proffered as proofs belong instead, with surprisingly few although notable exceptions, to a foreign-political discourse where the target for the critique is Judah's decision to rebel against Assyria (not social injustice). The author also makes a novel suggestion concerning why and how a social-critical outlook has been related to a foreign-political discourse in the book of Isaiah as a whole. 231 pp. Englisch.

Book Description Tübingen : Mohr Siebeck, 2008. Gr.-8°, Brosch. VIII, 231 S. Neubuch / New Copy // Olof Bäckersten hinterfragt den wissenschaftlichen Konsens über eine sozialkritische Ausrichtung von Jesaja 1–39. Diese kommt beispielsweise in Textpassagen zum Ausdruck, in denen die Jersualemer Elite wegen ihrer selbstgefälligen Art, ihrem dekadenten Lebensstil und ihrer mehr oder weniger systematischen Unterdrückung der Armen verurteilt wird. Bäckersten argumentiert, daß die Textpassagen, die als Beweise dafür vorgebracht werden, sich statt dessen mit wenigen Ausnahmen auf Jesajas Widerstand gegenüber Judas Außenpolitik beziehen (und nicht auf soziale Ungerechtigkeit). Mit seiner Untersuchung macht er einen neuen Interpretaionsvorschlag und erklärt, wie und warum ein sozialkritischer Standpunkt mit dem außenpolitischen Diskurs im Buch Jesaja als ganzem in Verbindung steht.
