The Prophetic Literature: An Introduction

Westminster John Knox Press, 2002 M01 1 - 260 páginas

Respected scholar David Petersen provides a systematic and comprehensive introduction to the prophetic literature. Petersen takes into account the major advances in current research as he examines both the literature of the latter prophets (Isaiah-Malachi) as well as the Hebrew texts that describe the work and words of Israel's earlier prophets (e.g., Elijah and Elisha in 1 & 2 Kings).

Re Hope: why the conclusion that “hope” after punishment was inserted later? Unless the premise is that there is no god? That is the only way to explain how the prophets made true and reliable predictions. Yes, after Jerusalem was destroyed, as foretold-for their unfaithfulness—AND then they would return to their homeland, to better conditions. Reading such terms as “the so-called Davidic Covenant” demonstrates that this author is biased. In addition, where is the PROOF that anything was inserted into the prophet’s words? Again, this author makes assumptions that some anonymous people snuck in phrases, sentences, and sections to the Israeli prophets words. Who? When? Where? May it be noted that in court those factors are necessary to a case. Nor does this author acknowledge the Dead Sea Scrolls, in which the book of Isaiah demonstrates continuous writing of a single author, Isaiah himself. Isaiah was divinely inspired to write his book. The prophesies were fulfilled to the letter. The only way, according to this author’s bias, for that to happen, ‘must have been’ that it was added after. If so, then the burden of proof falls on those who claim it was altered. Proof? Facts? Opinion does not count as evidence.
