Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the pre-exilic, exilic, post-exilic Glory tradition. It discusses the Glory in terms of the whole prophetic corpus throughout the whole time period. The prophets employ the Royal Davidic promise tradition to speak of the new configuration of Israel's future. The chapter focuses on the prophetic call narratives and the role which Glory plays in them. Walther Zimmerli pioneered the application form-critical and tradition-historical methods to the prophetic call passages. He discovers the tradition-historical antecedents of Ezekiel's call in the visions of Isaiah 6 and 1 Kings 22. The prophetic use of Glory went beyond deconstructing the extremes of the Royalists. The prophets also coaxed out of Glory not only a message of pedagogical judgment but also a kerygma of hope. The prophets re-invest the tradition with eschatology to proclaim a new word. Glory also played a significant role in the calls of the prophets.

Keywords: Ezekiel's call; Glory; Isaiah 6; Israel; prophetic corpus; Walther Zimmerli
