Isaiah 65 and Dante

I was reading Isaiah 65 for religion homework the other day, and I noticed a similarity between Isaiah's mention of god creating a new Jerusalem and Dante's notion that the second coming shall not initiate until a new Rome is created. In both cases, both cities were prophesied to become places of joy and delight and idealism.

Just thought it was interesting seeing that similarity. Perhaps that could've been an indirect influence on Dante.
