By the Rivers of Babylon—Exile
Lecture no. 2 from the course: The World of Biblical Israel
Taught by Professor Cynthia R. Chapman | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Start your journey through biblical Israel with a look at the Babylonian exile. In this period, the exiled Judeans began asking themselves who they were as a people and why they had been conquered. Because the Bible began to be compiled in this time of exile, it offers us two vantage points for understanding its history.
