How long did the Israelites practice the Year of the Jubilee in Leviticus? Was it until the Kings or longer? And, I'm sure they watered it down as time went past.

John,

From an article in ISBE, Eerdmans, 1974 by William Baur:

Quote
We may well ask: Did the Jewish people ever observe the Jubilee Year? There is no reason why they should not have observed it in preexilic times (cf. Lotz in New Sch-Herz, X s.v. "Sabbatical Year" and "Year of Jubilee"). Perhaps they signally failed in it and if so, we should not be surprised at all. Not that the institution in itself was cumbered with any obstacles that could not have been overcome; but what is more common than unbelief and unwillingness to trust absolutely in Jeh? Or, was it observed in post-exilic times? Here, too, we are in the dark. There is, indeed, a tradition according to which the Jubilee Year has never been observed - neither in the time of Ezra or Nehemiah nor at any later period. The truth of this seems to be corroborated by the silence of Jos, who, while referring quite frequently to the sabbatic year, never once mentions the Year of Jubilee.

In His grace,
