1 Corinthians 10:16
The purpose of this study is to discover the theological significance of the word פָבוֹ ד as used in the Book of Isaiah. פָבוֹ ד , most often translated into English as "glory," is a term which encompasses such meanings as honor, fame, wealth, reputation, brightness, brilliance or splendor, and, when used in reference to God, heavenly brilliance, sublimity or magnificence.) Throughout Isaiah, the term פָבוֹ ד is utilized frequently, with reference to God, as well as to men and nations. It is the thesis of this study that, as the term is used throughout Isaiah, the term- פָבוֹ דbecomes a theologically important word which expresses both God's immanence and His transcendence: His immanence revealed in His declaration of His presence and protection for His people; His transcendence disclosed in the midst of theophanic encounter, revealing His holiness, character and essence. The purpose of this study is to make an exegetical study of Isaiah's use of פָבוֹ ד, to determine its theological significance within the book of Isaiah and to bring the study of this subject up to date.
