A new exodus

“Isaiah’s vision of cosmic renewal and joy, of heaven and earth coming together because of the work of the Servant, because of the establishment of the covenant, fits exactly with Paul’s understanding of his own apostolic labour, in which suffering and joy are woven so closely together, in which in particular he himself has ‘become’ the covenant faithfulness of God, and in which the present time has become ‘the time of favour’, ‘the day of salvation’.” ~ N.T. Wright’s Paul and the Faithfulness of God
