Julie Zimmerman Dierdre Fulton CAMS 110 Hebrew Bible Fall 2007 Quiz #2 Alternative Assignment December 16, 2007 Exile and Return in the Bible Babylon and Assyria The Tanakh has many themes, one of the most prevalent is the theme of Exile and Return. We will be focusing on two different occurrences of this theme. Each is unique to its own time period and situation. They both take place in the Nevi’im but during two different reigns of empire: The Babylonian and the Assyrian empires. Generally speaking, the Babylonian Exile is a name of an event taken place around the 6 th Century BCE that describes when the Jews of Judah were exiled to Babylon by King Nebuchadnezzar. We are told this account by two prophets: Ezra andn Nehemiah. Right before the Jews were exiled, they were living in Judah in the time of the United Monarchy, and still being ruled of the line started by King David. The Babylonians were not looked kindly upon seeing as this exilic event corresponded with the demolition of the first Temple of Jerusalem.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
