- Expert meeting: Ongoing Interpretation. The Servant of YHWH in Text and ContextIt is a much debated question: who is meant in the texts about the servant of YHWH in Isaiah? Different answers have been given in different traditions over the centuries. Is the èvèd YHWH a particular individual, or should we read the texts collectively? Or is it possible to combine those two aspects? Are there any traces of the historical background of the texts, or should we understand them more metaphorically? This expert meeting at the Protestant Theological University will examine different paths of interpretation that have been taken, and will ask about the topicality and relevance of the texts. Keynote speaker will be Prof.Dr. Ulrich Berges, renowned Isaiah specialist from Bonn.
