From King Solomon to Preclassical Prophecy

Lecture no. 17 from the course: The Old Testament

 From King Solomon to Preclassical Prophecy

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.
