The King and the City of Salvation

The two cities of Isaiah 24–27 defy specific identification. Indeed Isaiah intentionally left them generic to encapsulate the story of human history. For, he argues, there really are only two cities: the city of humanity and the city of God, the city of ruin and the city of salvation.

Christians might presume they are part of the latter—residents of the city of God, protected in the city of salvation. But this passage shows that the city of humanity, the city destined for ruin, includes both pagans and spiritual, both irreligious and religious.

So who is in the city of salvation?
