Different messages for different contexts: the literature of the exile
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.
