Prophets: From Doom to Salvation – The prophets of Israel as we encounter them in the Hebrew Bible are the distinctive representatives of Hebrew Religion. In looking back at the past, analysing the present and predicting the future, they bear witness to the history of the God of Israel and his people. The prophets, as mediators between God and the people, played an important role all over the Ancient Near East. However, only the Hebrew prophets come in books that reflect on the relationship between God and his people. We will focus on the emergence of Hebrew prophets and the theological history of Israel that can be glimpsed in their writings.
