Item description for A Portrayal of Trust: The Theme of Faith in the Hezekiah Narratives by David Bostock & R. W. L. Moberly...

'A fine and detailed narrative-theological reading of the Hezekiah texts' Walter Moberly

Publishers Description
This study examines the Hezekiah narratives as found in 2 Kings 18-20 and Isaiah 36-39, with special reference to the theme of faith, using narrative criticism as its methodology. Attention is paid especially to setting, plot, point of view and characterization within the narratives. The Kings version is taken as the main text for exegetical purposes, but relevant differences in the Isaiah text are noted. Articles and books on 'faith' in the Old Testament rarely mention Hezekiah as an example of faith. Until recently, studies that have treated the theme of faith in the book of Isaiah have tended to neglect this section because of their historical-critical stance. Again, there are many studies of the Hezekiah narratives, but few focus on literary methods and/or the theme of faith. The major part of the study involves a detailed exegesis of the text. How the narratives function within the context of the book of Kings is also considered. Furthermore, faith as a theme in the book of Isaiah is examined. The plot of the longest narrative (2 Kgs 18:13-19:37) proves to be very instructive in the way that the verb 'to trust' is used. Isaiah, YHWH, Sennacherib and Hezekiah emerge as main characters within the narratives. Different points of view and the use of temporal and geographical setting also reinforce the characterization. In particular, a largely positive portrait of Hezekiah as an example of faith emerges.
