Jeremiah at Mizpah of Benjamin (Tell en-Naṣbeh): The Archaelogical Setting
MetadataShow full item record
Zorn, Jeffrey R.
Provides an archaeological and historical interpretation of the prophet Jeremiah's short stay at Mizpah of Benjamin following the destruction of Jerusalem and much of the Kingdom of Judah by the Babylonians in 586 BCE, and before his forced removal to Egypt. Paints a picture of the recent desolation of Jerusalem and the fates of refugees and deportees. Attempts to illustrate what Jeremiah's experience of Mizpah would have been as its older buildings were leveled and new buildings began to be erected to house the Babylonian appointed administration of Gedaliah.
