Chapter Summary

In the description of the period of the First Temple, the Land appeared in the form of the various Lands of the law-abiding kings. These Lands were all Templecentered and constituted by righteous kingship, but they comprised different areas: first, all Palestine, then only Judah, and then, in the period of the last righteous king, the extent of the Land did not extend beyond the city of Jerusalem. At the breakthrough of Messianic power, the remnant re-entered Mount Zion, the Land of the Messianic era. The extent of territory inhabited and maintained by the righteous shrank throughout 2Baruch?s history of the corruptible world. 2Baruch actively plays with motifs and metaphors, recombining them and blending them with motifs related to other high-profiled redemptive spaces of the contemporary era in order to create authoritative and alternative Lands for Israel.

Keywords: 2Baruch ; Israel; Jerusalem; Judah; Messianic era; metaphors; Palestine
