Paul's Quotation of Isaiah 54.1 in Galatians 4.27

Research output: Contribution to JournalArticleAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

The importance of the quotation of Isa 54.1 in Gal 4.27 for understanding Paul's allegorical reading of the story of Sarah and Hagar (Gen 16-21) in Gal 4.21-5.1 has often been underestimated. Paul uses this quotation to give his interpretation of this story an eschatological dimension that, unlike the eschatology of Second Isaiah, is both profoundly christological and apocalyptic. © 2004 Cambridge University Press.
