Can you back this up with scholarly evidence please??

I agree with this, Liz.  Burial practices in the 2nd Temple period may not
have been prophecied by deutero-Isaiah but may have been influenced by
Isaiah...sort of prophecy historicized by sages who believed Isaiah was
predicting events hundreds of years later.  Isaiah appears to be the prophet
of choice in the New Testament.
