This unit deals with prophetic works of the Hebrew Bible which cover a period of almost two hundred years from the destruction of the Kingdom of Israel to the restoration of the kingdom of Judah and the hope of the revival of the Davidic monarchy. The prophetic texts reflect the engagement of the ancient writers with theological matters, arising from the political and social challenges of their time.
