The question of the presence or absence of eschatological ideas in the prophetic writings has been debated for years, with scholars defending both positions. The question is problematic because of the difficulty of defining "eschatology" in a way that will do justice to the prophetic material. If understood strictly as a cosmic cataclysm, as a suprahistorical return to chaos followed by cosmogony, or even as the end of the present order and the beginning of a radically different order, eschatology cannot be said to have a central place in the utterances of the preexilic and exilic prophets.
