Abstract:The present work examines the theme of the "way of the LORD" in the book of Isaiah. In doing so it seeks to refute the view popularized by Walther Zimmerli that the announcement of this "way" initially referred to a literal road extending from Babylon to Palestine in Isaiah 40:3 and was later reinterpreted in a figurative and ethical manner in Isaiah 57:14 and 62:10. This study argues that the "way of the LORD" is initially conceived of in the 1st half of the book as a highway leading to Zion for both dispersed Israelites as well as the nations. Chapters 34-35 provide two contrastive images that function literarily as one proleptic vision of this "way." Chapter 34 announces that Yahweh will once again reveal himself as a divine warrior in the Sinai tradition and chapter 35 proclaims the creation of a highway of pilgrimage for the holy. Chapter 40 announces that the "way" of chs 34-35 has been inaugurated yet here the focus is upon Yahweh's coming, not the return of the people. To the exilic generation, Cyrus fulfills this "way" in history by allowing Israel to return home conditioned upon the people's willingness to flee Babylon. But since the "way" is in essence a theophany, Israel awaits the full realization of this hope even after the return from exile. Isaiah 56-66 emphasizes the ethical demands of this "way" as well as its eschatological goal. These chapters return to the notion in chs 1-39 that this "way" signifies an ingathering among all the nations to the eschatological Zion, not merely an exit from Babylon. The march of Yahweh along the "way" can be transhistorical since it is rooted in Israel's ancient Sinai traditions and has never been fully consummated. This "way" is fulfilled in the advent of Christ and the establishment of the church, yet its final goal is the New Jerusalem. Isaiah combines Israel's canonical traditions of creation, exodus, and history to produce a message of hope as well as repentance. Isaiah's message then is overtly ethical and eschatological as understood by the NT writers.
