The Evasive Text employs an eclectic mix of structuralist and post-structuralist theories in a doomed attempt to discover the symbolic logic at work in Zechariah 1–8’s surreal narrative world. Lengthy analyses of Zechariah’s intra- and intertextual logic, or lack thereof, are presented. It is finally concluded that Zechariah lacks a concrete symbolic logic, defies grammatical conventions and is “unreadable” as it stands—and always was this way. One suggestion is that it was the intent of the author, conceived of in a postmodern way, to produce such a work. It is finally concluded that the “post-prophetic” age of Hebrew literature has much in common with the postmodern.
