Chapter Summary

Towards the end of the last century an important shift in accent was to be observed in the arena of biblical studies. Since the emergence of historical-critical research, diachronic analysis tended to dominate the scholarly study of the Old Testament for the best part of a century. This chapter focuses on the preaching of the historical prophet Isaiah and the role of Zion therein. It offers a contribution to present day understanding of one of the most important elements in the preaching of Isaiah. The chapter describes the important Zion text of Isa. 28:16 as its point of departure with a view to establishing a clear picture of the place of the Zion tradition in the prophet Isaiah. It determines the extent to which an adequate understanding of the Zion text can contribute to contemporary research into the place of Zion and the Zion tradition in the preaching of Isaiah.
