Historical-Cultural and Theological Contexts o This whole segment is just summing up the story from Genesis to 2 Kings o Comes to the conclusion that in regard to the historical context, most the prophets preach in one of two contexts Just prior to the Assyrian invasion, which destroyed the northern kingdom Israel, or.. Just prior to the Babylonian invasion which destroyed the southern kingdom, Judah. o These contexts are extremely important in order to understand the prophets. We must constantly keep them before us as we read and interpret the Old Testament prophetic literature. Theologically the prophets proclaim their message from the context of the Mosaic covenant, primarily as defined in Deuteronomy. They tell the people to repent, to turn from idols, and to return to the terrible punishments God threatened in Deut. The ultimate punishment, which they announce with sorrow, is the loss of God’s presence and the loss of the Promised Land Interpretation and Application o Remember to “grasp the text in their town.”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
