TH 602 - Prophets and Prophecy

(3.00 cr.)

Biblical stories about prophets, as well as the works of the classical or "writing" prophets are examined. Students are introduced to the roles of Israelite prophets in the light of ancient Near-Eastern prophecy in general, and to the role of prophetic preaching in the development of Israelite religious thought. Examination of prophetic books includes the study of prophetic poetry; the historical contexts in which prophets spoke; the theological perspectives of each prophetic work; and the ways in which Old Testament prophecy is taken up in the proclamation of the New Testament.
