Might have been part of the Royal Family He comes from the South and prophesizes in the South. We do not know about his death, but people suspect he was martyred (cut in half) He differs from Amos in that he advises Kings Dates in this period (742 – circa 700) Remember: 722 – Fall of northern Kingdom 735 – 732 – Syro-ephraimitic war – background which some of these text should be read (Emphramatic = Israel) (Syro = Syria) Israel gets this idea that they are going to resist this large power and has an alliance with Syria… wants to get Judah involved too to fight against Assyria Why would you choose one way over the other?
