Wright on Exile

In the video below, renowned New Testament scholar Tom Wright discusses the significance of the Jewish exile on New Testament thought and theology.

Wright’s rather famous contention that second Temple Jews believed they were still in exile, even though they were in the land, had been met with some scepticism among scholars. Wright has however largely been vindicated in Exile: A Conversation with N.T. Wright, an academic volume edited by James M. Scott, where a diverse range of scholars critically engage with Wright’s exile thesis. You can read a helpful review of the critical dialogue here.
