Vocabulary List for FINAL EXAM Ruah : spirit or wind (refers to prophets giving off a prophetic ruah to other follower prophets)— refers to the “weird behavior” some prophets are associated with. Mari : place, northwest Mesopotamia. Ammorites move into Mesopotamia, especially Mari. They  bring their culture to Mesopotamia, along with prophecy: conversing with god, reproving nation,  predictions, and relationship to kingship.  Pre-classical prophecy : Up to 9 th  century BCE. These prophets: conversed with God, military  leaders, intercessor, reprove the nation, make predictions (or warnings), relationship to king,  maybe miracle worker, maybe strange behavior. (i.e. Moses, Samuel, Nathan, Elijah/Elisha,  prophets from NW Mesopotamia MARI). Classical Prophecy  Started with Amos around 8 th  century BCE.   The difference between  Classical Prophecy and pre-Classical is FORM rather than function. We know about these  prophets in a different way. In this case, the prophets would issue speeches, scribes would them  down on scrolls and preserve them.    (i.e. Amos, Isaiah, Jeremiah). The description of prophetic  job is about the same.  Monolatry/henotheism  the belief that you should worship only one god, but a monolatrous  person might be monotheistic (believes in one god and prays to that one) or polytheistic (believes  there is more than one god, but only worships one).
