This course is a historical, literary, and theological introduction to the Hebrew prophets designed to aid the students in understanding the biblical prophets and the forces that shaped their sayings. We will examine various dimensions of biblical prophecy including the nature of prophetic revelation, the stylistic forms of Hebrew prophecy and the theological, ethical, and social ramifications of prophetic message. While we will examine the overall context for prophecy in the ancient world our predominate emphasis will be reading the biblical texts focusing on particular prophets in Israel and Judah in their specific contexts.
