Title: Manasse und der Untergang Judas
Subtitle: 'Golaorientierte' Theologie in den Königsbüchern?

Abstract :
The passages about Manasseh in 2 Kgs 21,*3-16; 23,26-27; 24,3-4 do not reflect deuteronomistic theology, even though they are couched in deuteronomistic language. They express a 'gola' theology. Statements about the guilt of the kings and people of the Northern Kingdom have been subtly changed. Manasseh alone is to blame for the destruction of Judah and Jerusalem. The events of 597 B.C., not 587 B.C., bear witness to this.
