Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses the sequence of testimonies in the Apology, in each case examining the parallels in the Dialogue. Isaiah 53 is the first text within the creed sequence which Justin quotes extensively from the LXX. This serves to underscore the importance accorded to this testimony by Justin. Justin begins the chapter by stating that the Scriptural proof is now finished. This confirms our impression that Justin in ch. 52 has followed his source to the end and now looks back on a fulfilled task. Justin has accomplished two tasks: He has given an instruction in hermeneutics, and he has presented important Scriptural material on the suffering of the Messiah (l. Apol 38); the apostolic mission (l. Apol 39-46); the punishment of the Jews; and the Gentiles as a new people (1. Apol 47-49), and the healings of the Messiah (l. Apol 48, 1-3).

Keywords: Apology; apostolic mission; Dialogue; Gentiles; hermeneutics; Isaiah 53; Jews; Justin; Messiah
