Ezekiel—Exilic Informant

Lecture no. 16 from the course: The World of Biblical Israel

Ezekiel—Exilic Informant

Taught by Professor Cynthia R. Chapman | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Meet the prophet Ezekiel, an eyewitness to the Babylonian conquest of Jerusalem and a first-person informant on the experience of exile. Ezekiel’s traumas become symbolic of the larger national trauma, and this lecture introduces you to his visions and examines the theological developments that came about as a response to exile.
