Chapter Summary

In recent years, scholars of the prophetic literature have devoted particular attention to re-evaluating earlier criteria used to date hope oracles, analyzing the function of North Israelite prophetic oracles and theology in prophetic books, establishing the Gattung or genre or type of a complex prophetic pericope, tracing a prophetic oracle by traditio-historical methods, and determining the role which a prophetic oracle plays in its present form and position in a prophetic book. Such concerns have given rise to a number of studies on Mic.vii 7-20. This chapter attempts to reconstruct the history of the hope oracle in Micah vii 7-20 from a traditio-historical perspective. Micah vii 7-20 reflects a period of distress and affliction.

Keywords: hope oracle; Micah vii 7-20; theology
