Abstract:The thesis of this work is that the diverse perceptions of the exile preserved in the Book of Jeremiah present to us genuine options within ancient Israel, mainly post-destruction, for understanding and responding to the events of the Babylonian Exile. One cannot assume that the Book of Jeremiah is exhaustive of the options, but it does seem to include much of the possible range of response. Similarly, one must recognize that we do not have on record the actual words of this or that person or group, but rather what the Book of Jeremiah has ascribed to them. By engaging in a synchronic study of the varied perceptions of the exile as the Book of Jeremiah presents them, we can discover an important dialogue in which the community engaged concerning the reasons for, the character of and the possibilities for life after the exile. This study therefore approaches the Book of Jeremiah as a whole in terms of the various perceptions of the Exile and related events. In doing so, we find a quite interesting range of perceptions, frequently in conflict with one another. Further, we even find some contradictory perceptions ascribed to one particular person or party. Chapter one examines some offerings in recent scholarship that provide the background for the investigation we undertake, in particular moving beyond the older historical-critical problems associated with the Book of Jeremiah. With chapter two, we turn to the discussion of perceptions of the exile, beginning with varied expressions of the idea that the exile represents punishment by an offended deity. In chapter three, we consider alternative perceptions, namely, that the situation of exile was rather advantageous. Chapter four explores some perceptions of the role of Babylonia in the last days of Judah. Finally, in chapter five we examine varied perceptions of the end and aftermath of the exile.
