Description

This course gives an overview of work into the Book of the Twelve. It seeks to understand how interest in the unity and coherence of the canonical form of the Twelve would affect the genre of prophetic Introduction as well as a comprehensive view of prophecy (modern Introductions treat the individual prophets according to an historical sequence, and splice into that 3 Isaiahs, Jeremiah and Ezekiel). We will seek to understand the tension between the integrity of individual books and the larger theological structure governing the whole. The 'historical' prophet is a factor in canonical reading, but so too we must evaluate the effect of relationships deeply underscored within the editorial processes themselves. The Twelve is one witness; the Twelve are distinctive witnesses. That appears to be a truth preserved in the canonical process of the Twelve's editorial history, and the theological implication of this 'goodly fellowship of the prophets' must also be evaluated as an intentional act within Israel's reception of the prophets. Lectures include:

  • General Introduction
  • Jonah
  • Amos
  • Hosea
  • Joel
  • Obadiah
  • Hosea-Jonah - A Review
  • MIcah
  • Habakkuk
  • Zephaniah-Haggai
