Abstract

This thesis explores the usage and development of the wounding-healing metaphor in the book of Isaiah as an explication of God’s redemption, with particular focus on Isaiah 1:2-21; 6:10-13; 19:16-25; 30:19-26; 52:13-53:12; 57:14-21; 61:1-9. It also explores how the metaphor is consistently used with a cluster of themes (destruction and renewal in the land; ignorance and understanding of God; cultic defilement and purity; a polluted and purified people of God; divine responsiveness; and the nations as oppressors and co-worshipers) which further explain the content of metaphor.
