Collective and Individual Responsibility. A Description of Corporate Personality in Ezekiel 18 and 20

Ezekiel 18 and 20 offer possibilities for redefinition because they offer examples of collective and individual responsibility. Therefore, the study of Ezekiel 18 and 20 needs to precede determining whether these chapters offer a reliable textual basis toward a vision of the relationship between individual and collective responsibility in Ezekiel, with the use of the term ‘corporate responsibility.’ An overview of the field of Ezekiel scholarship is also relevant for arriving at a position within which the results may be described.
