Abstract

The Relation of Zech 9--14 to Proto-Zechariah1 By Rex A. Mason (Regenrs Park College, Oxford) It was B. Stade who attempted the first comprehensive analysis of the ref erences to earlier biblical material in Zech 9--142. The extensive use of such earlier biblical material in these chapters has since been widely recognized and has been alluded to in almost all subsequent commentaries. In this paper we shall limit ourselves to such dependence on the oracles of proto-Zechariah äs may appear in these chapters. We shall seek to discover if any continuing lines of tradition between the two are discernible, or in what respects the traditions of proto-Zechariah are modified in eh. 9--14. Rather than offer a detailed examination of the earlier chapters, I propose to direct attention to some of the main emphases. We shall consider five: the prominence of the Zion tradition; the divine cleansing of the Community; universalism; the appeal to the earlier prophets; and the provision of leadership äs a sign of the new age. 1. The Prominence of the Zion Tradition The opening oracle of deutero-Zechariah in 9 1-8 presents a formidable number of difficulties of Interpretation. After a superscription of disputed length, there
