Lecture 15 - Hebrew Prophecy: The Non-Literary Prophets

This video was recorded at YALE RLST 145 - Introduction to the Old Testament (Hebrew Bible) with Professor Christine Hayes. This lecture concludes the discussion of the Deuteronomistic historian's efforts to show that idolatry and associated sins lead to God's wrath and periods of trouble. The remainder of the lecture is an introduction to the phenomenon of Israelite prophecy which included ecstatic prophecy and prophetic guilds. The non-literary prophets of the historical books of the Bible and their various roles (as God's zealot; as conscience of the king) are examined. Reading assignment: Bible: (1) Introduction to The Twelve (JSB pp. 1139-42) (2) Introduction to Amos (JSB pp. 1176-7), Amos 1-9 Wilson, Robert R. "Biblical Prophecy."
