Interpreting the Prophetic Word: An Introduction to the Prophetic Literature of the Old Testament Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Instead of seeking a juxtaposition between the message of Moses and the prophets and that of our Lord and his apostles, the author advances the thesis that our Lord and the apostles confirmed that the message of the prophets is most relevant for individual and community ethics, for the development of godliness, and for the encouragement of living with hope and vision.

Synopsis:

The diversity of prophetic voices in the Bible provides a message that is rich and variegated. But the variety of the testimony can be lost by limiting one's interpretations or application of the prophetic word. Interpreting the Prophetic Word helps readers understand the harmony of the voices that reveal God's purposes in redemptive history. Dr. Willem VanGemeren explains clearly and fully the background of the prophetic tradition. He then interprets the message of the major and minor prophets, using historical context and literary form and structure as tools in his analysis. He concludes with an explanation of the relevance of the prophetic word today. Dr. VanGemeren's extensive research and scholarship is presented in a readable way to unlock the door of prophecy for readers. He helps them to interpret prophecy and invites them to listen to the prophets and to lives the prophetic word.
