Quantitative structural analysis of the book of Isaiah

News article / Nuusartikel

Dear colleagues!

I would like to share with you my quantitative structural analysis of the book of Isaiah, which has just been published on my website: seven pdf files (downloadable for free). To enable you to get an idea of the results, I might suggest that you read the first three pages of Segment I: Isaiah 1-12.

Last year my analysis of Genesis-Kings went online: http://www.labuschagne.nl/genesis-kings.htm.

In a review of the results I draw the conclusion that neither the Torah nor the so-called Deuteronomistic History were ever meant to be separate compositional entities. The article is a plea for the compositional unity of the Enneateuch, Genesis-Kings.  See the file “Overview of the results”:  http://www.labuschagne.nl/genesis-kings.results.pdf.
