Although the scriptural e-book of Samuel includes 1506 verses, in simple terms approximately 2 hundred discuss the prophet Samuel.
The ebook many times portrays him in the course of his outdated age in an unattractive, belligerent, outspoken, and vindictive manner.
Like some of the different biblical books, Samuel exhibits no familiarity with the legislation within the 5 Books of Moses.
Despite the Torah permitting the crowning of a king, Samuel doesn't are looking to achieve this, as the people's call for for a king represents their rejection of Samuel's carrier to his humans, and the provider of his sons whom he was hoping may keep on his legacy.
Scholars pressure that it was once Samuel's own enmity to Saul, no longer Saul's habit, that used to be the true the reason for this is that he declared so violently that Saul's country could finish and the monarchy move to a different, higher individual now not of Saul's family.
The ebook offers differing money owed of an analogous occasions, together with the style during which Saul turns into king, the explanation Samuel tells Saul his nation will finish, David's advent to the historical past, and the slaying of Goliath.
The publication of Samuel is among the hottest books of the prophets and is often taught to kids in Jewish day faculties, but regardless of its value as a biblical booklet it's typically misunderstood. Readers will take pleasure in Dr. Drazin's research of Samuel and study a lot from it, not just approximately Samuel but in addition approximately how the Bible tells its tales.

Das Gebet gehört nicht zu den Grundformen prophetischer Überlieferung. Gleichwohl wird in den Prophetenbüchern der hebräischen Bibel an theologischen Knotenpunkten gebetet. In der vorliegenden Studie untersucht Alexa F. Wilke die Texte des corpus propheticum, in denen sich Sprecher an Gott wenden. Sie verfolgt die Frage nach der literarischen und theologischen Funktion der Gebete in ihrem Kontext und zeichnet das jeweilige Selbst- und Gottesbild der Betenden nach. Dabei berücksichtigt sie das literarische Textwachstum der behandelten Gebete und ihre entsprechende redaktionsgeschichtliche Einordnung. Sie zeigt auf, dass die Gebete der Propheten nicht von ihrer Umgebung zu isolieren sind. Die durchgängig spät in ihren Kontext eingetragenen Hinwendungen zu Gott aktualisieren und interpretieren ihren Kontext und sind Medium der Personalisierung und Intensivierung des im Kontext Verkündeten. Mit der Erarbeitung dieser Texte, in denen sich theologische Entwicklungen der Prophetenbücher kristallisieren, leistet die Studie sowohl einen Beitrag zur Erhellung der Rezeptions- und Fortschreibungsgeschichte der Prophetenbücher als auch zur Frage nach einer Theologie des Betens.
