Description

This unit provides a detailed study of the writings of the four “major” prophets of the Old Testament – Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel. The student will gain an overview of the nature of the genre of the prophetic literature and its place in the canon of the Old Testament. The unit will further examine the personalities, historical and cultural background, social setting and theology of the four “major” prophets. Selected passages from the Book of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel will be chosen for exegesis.
