Chapter Summary

The prophetic book provides a significant share of the traditional scriptures. This chapter analyzes the texts initially from diachronic point of view to explore the relationship between the king and the "prophet" in detail, as it appears in the texts. The study presents what image of prophecy in terms of their functions, titles and their social environment is mediated. The study of individual texts, the questions about the dating of these texts, their tradition-makers and the relationship to the historical reality in selected points are completely considered. The present study is expected to be pre-exilic edition of the deuteronomistic history at the time of Josiah and two layers Deuteronomistic editors. In any case, two Deuteronomistic editors layers must be distinguished in the Samuel-Saul-traditions as well as in the Elijah texts. The original text of the chapter is in German.

Keywords: deuteronomistic editors; deuteronomistic history; Elijah texts; Josiah; prophet; Samuel-Saul-traditions
