I am involved with several biblical and academic societies, one of which is the Society of Biblical Literature. Right before thanksgiving, I presented a paer at the Society of Biblical Literature Annual Meeting in Boston, titled: "Will the Servant 'See Light'?: A Reexamination of the 'ôr Variant in Isaiah 53:11." I thought I would share with you my paper abstract, and the handout I gave out during the presentation (see the attached PDF).
The handout involves a lot of Hebrew, but everything is translated into English. Obviously, since this is just a handout, the majority of my argument is not established in the PDF, but I thought you may enjoy it anyways.
I will let you know when I publish the paper. I will also try and retain my rights to the publication, so I can feature the full-length paper here.
I have considered writing a short book about Isaiah 53:10-12. Because of this, I would love to know if you are interested in the subject matter my handout addresses; and if you think the book would be a worthy endeavor. By the way, my M.A. thesis (which I am currently finishing up), “The Resurrected, Reconciliatory and Restorative Servant in Isaiah 53:10-12,” is about this passage.
