Abstract How Israel is to relate to nations is a subject still under discussion in Isaiah studies. One position is that Israel has a mediating but essentially passive role at witness. This essay supports that position but argues that the "mission texts" in Isaiah also call for Israel to take the initiative in sharing God's good news. The argument is made using the method of innerbiblical interpretation or intertextuality and shows thereby how dominant the mission theme in Isaiah is. Sample texts are taken from each of the three so-called Isaiahs.
