Ezekiel is one of the best-structured books in the Old Testament. It is also one of the most bizarre among the prophetic books. The four major vision accounts (Ezek 1:1–3:15; 8–11; 37:1–14; 40–48) contribute greatly to both of these impressions.
The book, a slightly revised version of the author’s PhD thesis, aims to better understand the book of Ezekiel by better understanding the complex history of redaction that the vision accounts underwent and that interconnected these texts more and more tightly over time. The book combines redaction-critical analysis with literary methods that are typically used in a synchronic approach. Drawing on the paradigm of Fortschreibung, it is the first to present a united redaction history that takes into account the growing interconnections and dependencies between the vision accounts. Building on these results, the second part follows the development of selected themes, such as the relationships between characters, the roles of intermediate figures and anthropological and theological implications, throughout the stages of redaction.
