Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses the question: how are the temple, the city and the Land connected in 2Baruch, and what is the role of righteous praxis to this connection?. It discusses the role of the Land as Israel?s place of survival in the corruptible world (3:4?6): How does the fall of Jerusalem and the temple affect the Land as an environment of survival?. The chapter focuses on the cosmic role of the Land (3:7?9): what was the function of the Land within the corruptible world before the destruction of the temple? How does the fall of Jerusalem and its temple change the condition of the corruptible world, and how does the fact that Jerusalem comes into foreign hands affect the landscapes of the corruptible world?.
