Opening the Sealed Book
Interpretations of the Book of Isaiah in Late Antiquity
By (author) Joseph Blenkinsopp
Opening the Sealed Book by Joseph Blenkinsopp
Book DescriptionOf all the texts in the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, perhaps no book has a more colorful history of interpretation than Isaiah. A comprehensive history of this interpretation between the prophet Malachi and the first days of Christianity, Joseph Blenkinsopp's "Opening the Sealed Book" traces three different prophetic traditions in Isaiah - the "man of God," the critic of social structures, and the apocalyptic seer. Blenkinsopp explores the place of Isaiah in Jewish sectarianism, at Qumran, and among early Christians, touching on a number of its themes, including exile, "the remnant of Israel," martyrdom, and "the servant of the Lord." Encompassing several disciplines - hermeneutics, the Dead Sea Scrolls, Second Temple studies, Christian origins - "Opening the Sealed Book" will appeal to Jewish and Christian scholars as well as readers fascinated by the intricate and influential prophetic visions of Isaiah.
