This subject is a critical study of the prophetic literature of the Old Testament. It examines the prophetic writings against their varied historical, social, political and religious contexts, and it also explores critical issues associated with their interpretation. The subject examines the major theological and ethical themes of the prophetic writings and critically evaluates their contemporary relevance. Special attention is given to a discrete collection of prophetic texts. Exegetical and interpretive competence is further developed and refined through the critical review and creative application of historical, socio-cultural, rhetorical, poetic and ideological methods of analysis to a range of prophetic texts.
