Chapter Summary

Throughout the history of modern critical scholarship, the book of Ezekiel has suffered from relatively less critical attention and relatively greater misunderstanding when compared to its better-known counterparts. Ezekiels vision engages in dialog with the perspectives of the developing Isaiah tradition and builds upon it to account for the realities of the Babylonian exile and destruction of Jerusalem in the late-sixth century BCE. This chapter examines the various dimensions of this dialog in relation to the inaugural visions of the two prophets, oracles concerning divine judgment against Jerusalem and Israel, oracles concerning divine judgment against the nations, and oracles concerning the restoration of Jerusalem and Israel. Although Ezekiels oracles concerning the nations share much the same presupposition as Isaiahs oracles, the sequence of Ezekiels oracles is adapted to the perspectives of his time.

Keywords: Babylonian exile; book of Ezekiel; divine judgment; Ezekiels oracles; Isaiah tradition; Isaiahs oracles; Jerusalem; modern critical scholarship
