Chapter Summary

For the course on Old Testament (OT) exegesis, the author had to write a final exegetical paper on Isaiah 56:1-8 that had to be finished within a week. Together with the assignment of our subject, we received guidelines on how to write the paper, describing in brief the different steps which are important for the exegetical process, a kind of abstract from Barth/Steck. Modern commentators unanimously agree that Isa. 56:9 does not belong to the preceding section (56:1-8), but the Ancients apparently did not agree with that judgment. In his study of the Isaianic legacy of Trito-Isaiah, Beuken demonstrated that in several ways the first eight verses of Trito-Isaiah (56:1-8) resemble Isaiah 55 in a sense that they are a commentary on Isaiah 55. Generally Isa. 56:1-8 is read as an eschatological announcement of salvation, while especially vv. 3-7 are read as a demonstration of the universalism of Trito-Isaiah.

Keywords: Beuken; Old Testament (OT) exegesis; Trito-Isaiah
