  • How is the problematic nature of collective punishment portrayed in the Hebrew Bible?
  • What problems does the concept of intergenerational punishment “solve” for its ancient audience?
  • How do Ezekiel and Jeremiah differ in their attitude to the idea that punishment lasts over generations?
  • What are the basic differences in the biblical attitude(s) toward collective and intergenerational punishment?
