Religion, Science and the Environment (RSE) is a Christian Orthodox environmental movement that sponsors waterborne symposium study voyages. The new Apocalypse, which is rendering the seas and rivers lifeless, is not just a crisis in Man’s abuse of science. It is a crisis in his divine duty to care for the natural creation.

    From “Journal for the Study of the Old Testament”
  PDF Hezekiah’s Boil         JSOT 26/1 (2001): 31-42.
    Isaiah 36–38: The Assyrians invade Judah. The angel of the LORD kills 185,000 in the Assyrian camp. King Hezekiah himself apparently has bubonic plague, which is probably what decimated the invading army (plague was considered an instrument of the LORD’s wrath). Isaiah tells the king that he will die, but quickly changes his mind. Barker illuminates the account and posits a link to the Fourth Servant Song (Isaiah 52:13 – 53:12).
    Note: This link is for paid access to the article from JSOT. The document is also available free from Margaret Barkers website under the title The Original Setting of the Fourth Servant Song.
