Prophets and prophecy in the ancient Near East by Martti Nissinen( Book )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2018 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prophecy was a widespread phenomenon, not only in ancient Israel but in the ancient Near East as a whole. This is the first book to gather the available ancient Near Eastern, extra-biblical sources containing prophetic words or references to prophetic activities. Among the 140 texts included in this volume are oracles of prophets, personal letters, formal inscriptions, and administrative documents from ancient Mesopotamia and Levant from the second and first millennia B.C.E. Most of the texts come from Mari and Assyria. In addition, the volume provides new translations of the relevant section of the Egyptian Report of Wenamon, by Robert K. Ritner, and of various texts from Syria-Palestine containing allusions to prophets and prophetic activities, by C.L. Seow. By collecting and presenting evidence of the activities of prophets and the phenomenon of prophecy from all over the ancient Near East, the volume illumines the cultural background of biblical prophecy and its parallels. It provides scholars of the history, religions, and cultural traditions of the ancient Near East with important information about different types and forms of transmissions of divine words, and makes these valuable primary source materials accessible to students and general readers in contemporary English along with transcriptions of the original languages, indexes, and extensive bibliography

Constructs of prophecy in the former and latter prophets and other texts by Lester L Grabbe( )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays, arising from the meetings of the SBL's Prophetic Texts and Their Ancient Contexts Group, examines how prophecy has been constructed in biblical literature such as the Former Prophets, the Latter Prophets, Chronicles, and Daniel, and even in the Qur'an. Recognizing that these texts do not simply describe the prophetic phenomena but rather depict prophets according to various conventional categories or their own individual points of view, the essays analyze the way prophecy or prophets are portrayed in these writings to better understand how they were structured by their respective authors. -- Publisher

Ancient Prophecy: Near Eastern, Biblical, and Greek Perspectives' is the first monograph-length comparative study on prophetic divination in ancient Near Eastern, biblical, and Greek sources. Prophecy is one of the ways humans have believed to become conversant with what is believed to be superhuman knowledge. The prophetic process of communication involves the prophet, her/his audience, and the deity from whom the message allegedly comes from. Martti Nissinen introduces a wealth of ancient sources documenting the prophetic phenomenon around the ancient Eastern Mediterranean, whether cuneiform tablets from Mesopotamia, the Hebrew Bible, Greek inscriptions, or ancient historians
Images and prophecy in the ancient eastern Mediterranean( Book )

8 editions published in 2009 in English and German and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays examines the interrelationships between text and image particularly the ways in which iconography and/or references to images are used to depict prophetic actions or support prophetic messages. Textual and iconographic remains are examined from Israel and Judah, Egypt, Greece and Persia. Prophetic figures represented include Isaiah, Trito-Isaiah, Deborah, and Ezekiel, with royal imagery being examined as it relates to 'Daughter Zion', the role of the queen in Minoan prophetic traditions, and the modeling of kingship in Judean history by the Chronicler. This richly-illustrated volume originated in the Prophetic Texts and Their Ancient Contexts session in the 2005 Society of Biblical Literature annual meeting"--back cover
