Chapter Summary

In order to obtain an adequate picture of the history of exegesis, one is obliged to focus one’s attention on a cross-section thereof, taking a number of standard benchmarks as one’s point of departure. The most appropriate point of departure with respect to the text of Isaiah 28:16 is the Septuagint. A second benchmark in the exploration of the history of exegesis can be found in the New Testament’s interpretation of the Isaiah text. Prior to continuing the line of Christian exegesis from the New Testament to the early church, however, it makes sense to include Jewish exegesis of the Isaiah text in the survey, beginning with the function of the Zion text within the community of Qumran and further discussing the information found in the Targum and the Talmud. Final benchmark consists of the highly diverse contributions of modern biblical research.
