Chapter Summary

In many studies of the Zion tradition, the Zion text of Isaiah 28:16 has been unjustly given little if any attention. Under the influence of the New Testament, the Messianic explanation of Isa. 28:16 determined the manner with which the Zion text was read from the early beginnings of church history up to the last century. The Zion text of 28:16 is part of a prophecy of judgement (28:14–22), which is closely associated at the redactional level with the preceding prophecy of judgement (28:7–13). The salvation-historical framework within which the Zion text of 28:16 functions serves as an important indication that the Zion tradition also bore a specifically Israelite character for the prophet Isaiah. In his preaching, Isaiah intimately shared the traditions passed down to him with respect to contemporary Zion as the dwelling place of YHWH.
