Hebrew Exegesis: Prophets of Judah’s Restoration BIB617H

Instructor: Hebrew Exegesis: Prophets of Judah’s Restoration BIB617H

Prophets in the period of Judah’s restoration, following the exile, drew on earlier traditions to
interpret a radically new situation. In the process, these preachers and theologians helped to
preserve the Jewish community while giving a new shape to its theological heritage. We will study
the Hebrew text of selected chapters from Haggai and Zechariah within their wider biblical context,
attending to the central theological themes that unite and distinguish them. Prerequisites: see the
beginning of this section. (MDiv 1, 3)
