An Intertextual Analysis of Zechariah 9-10 : The Earlier Restoration Expectations of Second Zechariah, Paperback / softback Book

An Intertextual Analysis of Zechariah 9-10 : The Earlier Restoration Expectations of Second Zechariah Paperback / softback

Part of the The Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies series

Description

This book conducts an in-depth study on the ideas about future salvation in Zechariah 9-10.

In accommodation of the allusive character of the text, Lee uses the methodology of intertextual analysis to examine the markers in the text.

Having established the moments of intertextuality, Lee investigates the sources and their contexts, analyzing how the intertexts are used in the new context of the host and exploring how the antecedents shape the reading of the later text. Thus, Lee argues that Zechariah 9-10 leverages earlier biblical material in order to express its view on restoration, which serves as a lens for the prophetic community in Yehud to make sense of their troubled world in the early Persian period, ca. 440 B.C. These two chapters envision the return of Yahweh who inaugurates the new age, ushering in prosperity and blessings.

The earlier restoration expectations of Second Zechariah anticipate the formation of an ideal remnant settling in an ideal homeland, with Yahweh as king and David as vice-regent, reigning in Zion.

The new commonwealth is not only a united society but also a cosmic one, with Judah, Ephraim, and the nations living together in peace.
