Prophecy and Foreign Nations (EABS)

Program Unit Type: Section
Accepting Papers? Yes

Call For Papers: The 2018 meeting of the research unit “Prophecy and foreign nations” will address “foreign nations in the Book of Ezekiel”. Having discussed the foreign nations in the Book of Isaiah in 2016 and in Book of Jeremiah in 2017 – with regard to the Book of Ezekiel the main questions are: How can the oracles concerning foreign nations be interpreted with regard to the redaction history of the book? In which way can the literary interrelationship be determined between the respective passages in Isa, Jer and Ez? Papers addressing connections not only with Isa and Jer but also with the Book of the Twelve are welcome as well.
