Isaiah BIB533E

Instructor: Susannah M. Larry, PhD

Students will read and study the English text of the entire book with a view to its theological coherence and its relation to both diverse historical circumstances and the rest of scripture. Individual texts will be studied in detail, with an interpretive approach appropriate to both theological reflection and preaching. We will give particular attention to Isaiah’s creative use of Zion as a symbol of judgment, hope, and transformation, and to issues of conflict and migration.
