Among them are P. D. Hanson (1975), C. Stuhlmueller (1988), A. Laato (1992), and S. S. Tuell (2003). In this article we will examine some of the main arguments. It is our conclusion, based on a careful examination of the arguments, that only a few are valid. Yet we can show that both Haggai and Ezekiel share some prominent com- ponents of their world views. Both seem to belong to a millennial movement (based on a anthropological deﬁnition); both based their concepts upon theocentricity, and both deal seri- ously with the question of God’s status. Their solutions are however quite diﬀerent, due to their own experience and the diﬀerence in political and social situations. Keywords Ezekiel, Haggai, millennialism, theocentricity, God’s status Modern biblical scholarship locates the biblical corpus between two poles— continuity vs. innovation. On the one hand, scholars seek the sources
