- Reading Assignment:
- Isaiah 36–39
- The End from the Beginning, Gileadi (1997) pp. 39–41; (2012) pp. 29–31
Learn about Isaiah’s main theme—the redemption of Zion—through his use of a structure called Isaiah’s Zion Ideology. We will focus on Hezekiah’s trial and covenantal rebellion or compliance; the Davidic Covenant phrase, “God Is with Us”; Isaiah’s metaphorical pseudonym “arms”; and several instances of Zion Ideology in scripture. Highlighted are possible Mars’ Near Pass-bys and the grand finale of the Redemption of Zion!
