Teaching Slide: The Canonical Shape of 2 Isaiah

Click Me!

I created this slide (click to enlarge) during this past Spring Semester, to help illustrate why 2 Isaiah (chps 40-55) should not be read apart from the book as a whole. Isaiah 40 is anticipated by words of promise and comfort in the first part of the book. A trajectory running from the first to the second half of Isaiah is present, making key theological points including the idea that God's work in 2 Isaiah is part of a long-range plan of salvation and not just a political re-patriation of exiles.
