Hardback
Since at least the 19th century Hebrew Bible scholarship has traditionally seen priests and prophets as natural opponents, with different social spheres and world views. In recent years several studies have started to question this perspective. The present volume, arising from a meeting of the Prophetic Texts and their Ancient Contexts Group of the Society of Biblical Literature, represents a series of papers on the general question of the priests as portrayed in the Latter Prophets. The essays published here challenge many of past and current views about the relationship between priests and prophets. They also provide insights into the place of priests, prophets, and some other religious specialists in Israelite and Judean society in pre-exilic and post-exilic times. Journal for the Study of the Old Testament Supplement Series, 408
