Here is a question that poppsed into my head the other day. I have not looked into it at all and it might be utterly daft but I will ask it anyway.
Given that the trial motif looms large in Isa 40-55 and given that Isa 40-55 strongly influenced Paul's theology, might the trial motif in Isa 40-55 link in any way to Paul's theology of justification by faith? Is it background for the trial in which Paul's justification language finds its home?
