Festal Drama in Deutero-Isaiah

September 18, 2008

I will probably post some highlights at a later date but just so that you know, John H. Eaton’s Festal Drama in Deutero-Isaiah contains a summary of what he outlined in his Kingship and the Psalms i.e. a pre-exilic festival reconstructed from the Psalms. He then builds upon this to show how Deutero-Isaiah is influenced by the pre-exilic Autumnal Festival at Jerusalem. Both books make for very interesting reading and certainly represent the tragectory that I am on in terms of their Sitz im Leben. He is primarily building upon the work done by Mowinckel and Engnell.

This has implications for a canonical approach to the Psalter which I shall spell out at a later date. It will also have serious implications for how we read the gospels and I shall spell that out at a later date on יהוה מלך.

In sum my message is, read John H. Eaton’s Festal Drama in Deutero-Isaiah and his Kingship and the Psalms!
