Description: Scholars have long debated the identity of the servant in the first servant poem of Isaiah. In “Behold! My Servant”: An Exegetical and Theological Study of the Identity and Role of the Servant in Isaiah 42:1-9, Stéphane A. Beaulieu provides a fresh reinvestigation of the identity of the servant in Isaiah 42:1-9 and its role among the other servant poems. Beaulieu’s critical evaluation includes an examination of other relevant “servant” passages in Isaiah—particularly in Second Isaiah. Detailed comparisons reveal recurring commonalities and differences among these passages. The result is a thorough linguistic, intratextual, and thematic framework for interpreting the identity and role of this servant.

Subjects: Bible, Hebrew Bible/Old Testament, Prophetic Literature, Isaiah, Literature, Methods, Literary Approaches, Theological Approaches
