Jeremy Schipper writes this first volume in the Biblical Refigurations series, offering a fresh perspective on the textual, cultural, and interpretative contexts of the suffering servant in Isaiah. Schipper highlights the relevance of disability studies to the study of the biblical text. He engages research in disability studies form across the humanities to illuminate a very familiar passage in biblical studies. Shipper also reviews the history of scholarship on Isaiah 53 and presents a close reading that challenges frequent assumptions associated with the suffering servant. His work is clear and accessible, well suited to introducing and explaining cross disciplinary findings relevant to the study of the biblical text.
