Chapter Summary

This is introductory chapter of the book of Isaiah, which 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 significance of the contribution lies in its endeavour to assist our understanding of the role played by Zion in the preaching of the prophet Isaiah, in particular with respect to the relationship between his words of judgement and his words of salvation. The chapter offer an exegesis of the Zion text of Isa. 28:16 in its present context. Based on the results of the study, we endeavour to determine the extent to which an adequate understanding of the text can contribute to contemporary research into the place of Zion and the Zion tradition in the preaching of Isaiah.

Keywords: historical prophet Isaiah; Isaiah’s preaching; salvation; Zion
