Moral "Recipes" in Deuteronomy and Ezekiel: Divine Authority and Human Agency
The Hebrew Bible preserves evidence of a variety of overlapping but distinct moral systems. This essay examines the usefulness and limitations of Moral Foundations Theory (MFT) for providing categories by means of which these different moral systems may be compared. Building upon the categories established by MFT, this essay compares the moral systems of Deuteronomy and Ezekiel. In addition, it goes beyond the concerns of MFT to examine how moral agency is configured differently in these two texts in relation to the different "moral recipes" that they construct.
