Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses how 2Baruch constructs the Land of past generations, how this construction responds to the destruction of Jerusalem and its temple, affirms the survival of Israel in the present, and legitimises the claim for Israel?s future redemption. It focuses on the presentation of the Land in 2Barch 53?74. The chapter also discusses the effects of kingship and of the establishment of divine presence in the temple on the presentation of Land as covenantal space. The central question in this chapter is: what is the relationship between the region of Palestine and the Land in the Apocalypse of the cloud?. It suggests that the inauguration of the temple and the introduction of righteous kingship shaped the Land as covenantal space within the region of Palestine.

Keywords: 2Barch; Apocalypse; Israel; Jerusalem; Palestine; righteous kingship
