Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the Zion text of Isaiah 28:16, with the presentation of an exegesis of the said Zion text in its present context as its primary goal. It offers the results of author's research with a view to drawing some provisional conclusions as a point of departure for further research into the place of Zion and the Zion tradition in the preaching of Isaiah. The chapter presents a survey of the extent to which ‘Zion’ as a theme is represented in the first part of the book of Isaiah (1–39) together with the manner with which it is presented therein. The Zion text of Isa. 28:16 constitutes part of a prophecy of judgement that stretches from verse 14 to verse 22. This represents the text’s most immediate context, which is particularly determinative for the way in which the Zion text functions.

Keywords: Isaiah 28:16; prophecy of judgement; Zion text; Zion tradition
