DitTerent messages for ditTerent contexts: the literature of the exile (597-539 BC)
In this article the biblical literature that originated in the exile is discussed. It is indicated how these different writings (Lamentations, exilic psalms, Jeremiah and his editors, Obadiah, Ezekiel, the Priestly Writer of the Pentateuch and Deutero-Isaiah) addressed specific contingent situations within the broader context of the exile. The variegated messages of these texts in different contexts suggest that the Biblical text should not be regarded as a homogeneous text with one supra-temporal message, but did communicate with people precisely because of its variety and relatedness with specific historical contexts.
