Prophets and Prophecy in Jewish and Early Christian Literature
This volume grew out of an international conference on Prophetism in the Old and New Testament (October 2006), organised by the Centre for Biblical Studies of the Babes-Bolyai University Cluj-Napoca. The volume contains fourteen essays covering various aspects of prophetism and prophetic literature in Jewish and early Christian tradition, using a variety of methods and approaches. Special attention was given to the figures of Samuel (W. Dietrich, J. Klein) and Isaiah (B. Doyle), the development of prophetism in the early church (U. Luz), Paul as a prophet (T. Nicklas) and prophets in deutero-Pauline literature (H. Klein), the reception of prophetic traditions in the synoptic gospels (P. Foster, K. Zamfir, J. Verheyden) and in the Johannine literature (U. von Wahlde, B. Kowalski, S. Martian), the Apostolic Fathers (C.N. Jefford) and the Sybilline Oracles (R. Buitenwerf).
