Scofield's Reference Notes

Isaiah 59



Verse 4


(See Scofield "Psalms 2:12").

Verse 19


(See Scofield "Psalms 19:9").

Verse 20


Redemption: Kinsman type, summary. The goel, or Kinsman-Redeemer, is a beautiful type of Christ.

(1) The kinsman redemption was of persons, and an inheritance Leviticus 25:48; Leviticus 25:25; Galatians 4:5; Ephesians 1:7; Ephesians 1:11; Ephesians 1:14

(2) The Redeemer must be a kinsman Leviticus 25:48; Leviticus 25:49; Ruth 3:12; Ruth 3:13; Galatians 4:4; Hebrews 2:14; Hebrews 2:15.

(3) The Redeemer must be able to redeem Ruth 4:4-6; Jeremiah 50:34; John 10:11; John 10:18

(4) Redemption is effected by the goel paying the just demand in full Leviticus 25:27; 1 Peter 1:18; 1 Peter 1:19; Galatians 3:13. (See Scofield "Exodus 14:30") See Scofield "Romans 3:24"

come to Zion

The time when the "Redeemer shall come to Zion" is fixed, relatively, by Romans 11:23-29 as following the completion of the Gentile Church. That is also the order of the great dispensational passage, Acts 15:14-17.

In both, the return of the Lord to Zion follows the outcalling of the Church.
