Any advice on books which will help me to look at the servant song from Isaiah 53 in its original context? Anything online? Any forums? Discussions? Blogposts? Etc before I start to tackle my NICOT?
I need to consider its use by the Church as finding fulfillment in Jesus, but for the most part, I need to look at what it meant in its original context.
Its a strange task but a necessary one, I understand. We are to be critical and scrutinising, it does feel slightly uncomfortable. My Goldsworthy 'Gospel-centred hermeneutics' will have to remain on the shelf for this one and I might have to read more about what this passage says to the Jewish people who are still awaiting the Messiah, if for most of my essay I am to uncover what/whom else it might point to than Christ himself.
I also really need to make sure that I do not digress into some kind of consideration of PSA again, which has a habit of taking over my thinking at times.
