Mythology and Lament : Studies in the Oracles about the Nations Hardback
Part of the Society for Old Testament Study series
The oracles about the nations in Isaiah, Jeremiah and Ezekiel originate in the ancient Laments.
Ultimately, they were preserved because of their relevance to the Year of Jubilee, with its origins in the New Year Festival; this study illuminates their intention.
In Mythology and Lament, John Geyer shows the oracles belong to the sphere of worship, making a theological (mythological) statement, not a political one.
Relating to current debates about the historicity of the Hebrew Bible, Geyer also provides a theological context to questions of conflict of nations and environmental debates.
