Isaiah in Romans. A Fresco of salvation
Isaïe en Romains. Une fresque du salut
Nearly twenty times, Romans quotes or evokes Isaiah, especially the Book of Consolation, including the 4th Song of the Servant. The latter is already well underlying at the junction between the first part of the letter (Rm 1-4) and the second (5-8). From Rm 9, the references to Isaiah are more evident and multiple, and the fourth song of the Servant emerges. The Apostle of the nations, in order to say the purpose of God accomplished in Christ for the benefit of every man, draws out perspectives and makes use of formulations, which a careful examination reveals that they are greatly nourished by the great prophet.
