Creation in Collision? Isaiah 40–48 and Zoroastrianism, Babylonian Religion and Genesis 1

  • Tina Dykesteen Nilsen School of Mission and Theology, Stavanger, Norway

Abstract

Isaiah 40‒48 emphasizes that Yahweh is a unique creator-god. Did the author(s) arrive at this idea by adopting, adapting or refuting other texts and traditions, and, if so, which? This article offers fresh arguments and re-examines the potential relations between Isaiah 40‒48, Zoroastrianism, Babylonian religion and the creation account in Genesis 1.
