I’m going to go ahead now and get started with some sixth-century material which–prophetic literature–which confronts the issues that were raised by the final destruction of Jerusalem. What was the meaning of this event and how could it be reconciled with the concept of Israel as God’s elect? How could such tremendous evil and suffering […]

We were talking last time about prophets of the Assyrian crisis.

It is easiest to think of them as being associated with particular crises in the nation’s history. We are not going to be looking at them all, and I have picked out some of […]

Commentary on Isaiah Chapters 13-27, Tziporah Levine, COJS.

The Dead Sea Scrolls Ch. 13-23- Oracles Concerning the Nations The three major later prophets—Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel—all devote considerable attention to the nations surrounding Israel, chastising them and prophesying their doom. Prophecies about the nations serve various functions in the different prophetic books. Amos uses such prophecies as a foil, lulling the Jewish people […]
