structure in isaiah
There is an overarching, double structure to the whole book of Isaiah:
Ruin and Rebirth - chapters 1-5 and 34-35
Rebellion and Compliance - chapters 6-8 and 36-40
Punishment and Deliverance - chapters 9-12 and 41-46:13b
Humiliation and Exaltation - chapters 13-23 and 46:13c-47:15
Suffering and Salvation - chapters 24-27 and 48-54
Disloyalty and Loyalty - chapters 28-31 and 55-59
Disinheritance and Inheritance - chapters 32-33 and 60-66
hi damon, i know you haven't participated in a while, hope everything's okay and you haven't completely disappeared from the board.
anyways, while we were discussing isaiah in another thread, regarding prophecy, i stumbled across this doctoral thesis. chapter 5 discusses the parallel (chiastic, if you like) structure within proto-isaiah.
i haven't had the opportunity to read that far into it, but i thought you might be interested.
