Seeing the biblical prophets in context makes all the difference in understanding their messages In The Prophets of Israel, Old Testament scholar and longtime field archaeologist James K. Hoffmeier explores the biblical prophets through their ancient settings. Listeners gain a more accurate and comprehensive understanding through many practical components: ● Focus on the geopolitical contexts of the prophets ● Clear explanations of the prophets' provoking messages ● Discussion questions for Bible students or instructor use These features vividly illustrate the biblical narratives and the prophets' concerns, helping listeners better comprehend each text's message and make informed theological applications. The biblical prophetic tradition extends far before and far after the Major and Minor Prophets. Hoffmeier draws on his extensive knowledge of ancient Near Eastern culture, geography, political realities, and the Old Testament message to locate the prophets in their worlds. This approach illuminates prophetic messages and ministries with a theological clarity that basic history and literary interpretation cannot achieve.
