In this course we will study prophecy in the Hebrew Bible. We will explore the historical and political settings of Israel’s prophets and we will consider how major events that occur in the lives and ministries of the prophets are reflected in the diverse themes and theological perspectives operative in prophetic books.

A number of the prophets we will study include Hosea, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Huldah, Ezekiel, and Jonah.
