Historically, the study of 50-51 has focused on two questions: was this the authentic word of Jeremiah? and what was the structure? Given the advances in the understanding of Hebrew poetry, the growth of the biblical text, the language of prophetic speech, and the history of the exile, these chapters are ripe for renewed study. Investigates Jeremiah 50-51 in four parts: poetry and structure; text and tradition; forms and images; and related anti-Babylonian traditions.
