Abstract

NDOGA, Sampson S.. Contemporary reflections on Ezekiel 22:23-31 as a depiction of collective responsibility of leaders for national demise. Old testam. essays [online]. 2014, vol.27, n.1, pp.247-262. ISSN 2312-3621.

However, Ezekiel's context is theocratic, to what extent does his prophecy apply to non-theocratic contexts? There is also in this oracle a quest for one man standing in the gap in order to avert divine judgment. How do we read that concept in contemporary settings?
