Elie Assis, "Zechariah 8 and its Allusions to Jeremiah 30–33 and Deutero-Isaiah"
This article argues that the first eight oracles in Zechariah 8:2-19 are based on the ideas and vocabulary of Jeremiah 30–33, while the last two oracles, vv 20–23, have no parallel in Jeremiah, but correspond to oracles of the anonymous prophet in Isaiah 40–66. Zechariah selectively used and adapted the material of his predecessors, in order to address the specific social and political reality of his generation. The ways in which this process was carried out are assessed in this article.
