Ezekiel among the prophetic tradition

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


This chapter presents an overview of the major topoi of prophecy in the book of Ezekiel with the question: To what extent do the authors in Ezekiel participate in the Hebrew Bible’s prophetic tradition? While the first part focuses on the major figures in the book (the people, the prophet, and God), the second part surveys examples of Yhwh’s action in history (judgment, ethics, and salvation). The chapter concludes that the book’s authors draw in great measure upon prophetic tradition—which they takea up, interpret, and continue in their own writings. The book thus proves to be part of an inner-prophetic discourse that firmly locates Ezekiel as an heir to the prophetic tradition.
