The books translated here as The Early Prophets—-Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings—-make up over one fifth of the Hebrew Bible. While they pro-gress chronologically, stretching from the Israelites’ settlement in Canaan to the destruction of the surviving kingdom of Judah some six centuries later, they constitute much more than a dry historical chronicle/5(39).

Jonah: A prophet in northern Israel, Johan likely lived in 8th century BCE. The book of Jonah is different from the other prophetic books of the Bible.

Typically, prophets issued warnings or gave instructions to the people of Israel. Instead, God told Jonah to evangelize in the city of Nineveh, home of Israel's cruelest enemy. The first of the literary prophets, Amos and Hosea, were called to challenge the apostate northern kings of Israel from Jeroboam II through Hoshea.

Because kings and people alike refused to return to Yahweh, in BC God allowed the powerful empire of Assyria to overthrow the northern kingdom of Israel. Book of Joel, ActsJoseph Smith-History 1: Moroni quoted Joel's prophecy to Joseph Smith.

About The Early Prophets: Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings The story of ancient Israel, from the arrival in Canaan to the destruction of the Kingdom of Judah and the Babylonian exile some six centuries later, here is the highly anticipated second volume in Everett Fox’s landmark translation of the Hebrew Bible.

The book of Daniel is sometimes included with the Major Prophets too—given Daniel’s intense visions about the interplay between Israel’s God and the empires of the world.

However, neither of these books come close to the sheer volume of Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel. The prophecy continues with what some scholars have called "The Book of Comfort" which begins in chapter 40 and completes the writing. In the first eight chapters of this book of comfort, Isaiah prophesies the deliverance of the Jews from the hands of the Babylonians and restoration of Israel as a unified nation in the land promised to them by God.

But The Early Prophets is not primarily a historical chronicle. It is, rather, ancient Israel’s meditation on its past, through a worldview in which the divine and the human interact, a “history with an attitude.” In these pages, readers will find a people engaged in defining its identity amid surrounding cultures, many of them much older.

Reinhard Gregor Kratz provides the reader with a clear analysis of the development of the institution of prophecy in ancient Israel and Second Temple Judaism. Chronicles, like any other historiographical or prophetic book within the repertoire of ancient Israel/Yehud, was meant to evoke memory, to bring particularfigures of the past to the present of the community and to allow members of the latter to shape and vicariously visit specific sites of memory (that is, people, places, events), which were construed through communally (more or less) shared acts of imagination as they.

For some kings, the primary name is followed (in parenthesis) by an alternate name. JERUSALEM, Israel – Nearly 3, years ago, Hebrew prophets wrote of how the land of Israel would be transformed. Now, a new book shows remarkable and even prophetic changes in the 70 years. We begin by exploring the question of the role of a prophet in ancient Israel.

We look at canon of the Hebrew Bible (Tanakh) and which books are classified as “Nevi’im” in the Jewish tradition. We also survey the historical period in which the majority of these books were written: the First Temple Period ( BCE).

One of the early writing prophets, Hosea used his own experience as a symbolic representation of God and Israel. The relationship between Hosea and Gomer parallels the relationship between God and Israel. Even though Gomer runs away from Hosea and sleeps with another man, he loves her anyway and forgives her.
