Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses how 2Baruch envisions the effect of Baruch?s imminent departure from earth on the space of the remnant. The remnant is still in the wilderness of the end-time, but Baruch?s move from Mount Zion to Hebron affects the description of the space of the remnant. How does Baruch?s move to Hebron change the description of the space of the remnant during the last days of Baruch?s life on earth? How does 2Baruch picture the remnant?s space after Baruch has left them? Baruch informs the representatives of Israel about his coming departure and commands them to continue the instruction of the people when he himself is gone. The chapter also discusses the functions of the merging allusions to death and hope triggered by the Hebron-reference and provide some suggestions as to their transforming effect on the character of the spatial construction ?here with me?.
