Abstract Some twenty years ago Prof. Magne Saebø published an article for the 80th anniversary of Claus Westermann entitled: Vom Individuellen zum Kollektiven. Zur Frage einiger innerbiblischen Interpretationen. Long before and continuously after that publication the question of the individual or/and collective interpretation of the so-called Servant Songs in Is 40-55 triggered Old Testament scholars. There is no space/ time or need to give an account of the history of interpretation of this exegetical and theological crux—the aim of my lecture is far more modest: I would like to present some developments of the last few years in order to see the whole question in a somewhat new light.
