From King Solomon to Preclassical Prophecy
Lecture no. 17 from the course: The Old Testament
Taught by Professor Amy-Jill Levine | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses
Biblical prophets were known less for predicting the future than for communicating divine will, usually through poetry, and often in debate with kings and priests. This lecture focuses on the "preclassical" (nonwriting) prophets, particularly Elijah.
