Prophetic Imagination

The Journal of Hebrew Scriptures has announced the publication of a new article in the latest issue of the Journal:


Simeon CHAVEL, “Prophetic Imagination in the Light of Narratology
and Disability Studies in Isaiah 40-48”


The study argues that to persuade Judeans in Babylon that
Yahweh, not Marduk, authored Cyrus’ victories, and they should move to
Judea, the author of Isa 40-48 countered an historiographically
advanced ideology that divine embodiment in royally sponsored temples
proves divine will, power, and presence. The author rejects any such
historiography as based in human faculties; develops a complex notion
of divine irreducibility and prophetic ability; and presents it in a
text to match.

The article is available in a PDF format. To access the article directly please click here.
