Chapter Summary

Isaiah 28:16 plays an important role in a variety of places in the New Testament. Zion text of 28:16 is understood as a promise of salvation for the future in 1 Pet. 2:6 and is given a Messianic interpretation in Rom. 9:33. New Testament authors read the Zion text of 28:16 in a different manner than the present author, whose study is based on the Masoretic text. In the context of the prophecy of judgement of Isa. 28:14–22, the prophet refers to the salvific deeds of YHWH with respect to Zion in 28:16. The New Testament considers the Old Testament salvific expectation with respect to Zion to have come to fulfilment in Jesus Christ. This chapter concludes that the Greek translation of Isa 28:16 unmistakably influenced the New Testament interpretation of this Zion text.
