Abstract

The sixth century B. C. was a momentous turning point in the history of the ancient Near East and the fall of Jerusalem and the exile were part of a wider canvas. A brief historical sketch and a description of the effects of the exile in Judah and Babylon is followed by a consideration of some of the responses to the tragedy. The priestly writer's response to the crisis of the exile is one amongst many others, although it appears to gain credence and finally establish itself as the authoritative version of events.
