Structure and Dynamic of Ez 20
A synchronic approach*
John Kennedy Mensah
Ezekiel 20 is one of Ezekiel’s historical reviews (see Ez 16; 23), a prophetic message which radically interprets old traditions. The literary approach employed by Ezekiel to analyze Israel’s history is not an ad hoc creation.1 Some exegetes find it impossible to understand the text synchronically; they see it as full of glosses, insertions, additions and so on.2 However, this article will present a synchronic analysis of the text and demonstrate the coherence of its thematic development. The paper will analyze three aspects, proceeding from structure and dynamics via an analysis of time to three levels of speech, which will be the basis for evaluation. ← 171 | 172 →
