In this article, the author sets out to provide some basic ideas about prophecy in the Bible that are not well understood today. In the process, the author expresses disappointment with popular prophecy today. The author also mentions what is here called the "five periods of prophecy," which are the early monarchy in Israel, the Assyrian judgment, the Babylonian judgment, the restoration period, and the intertestamental period.
Citing some similarities between the book of Exodus and the Egyptian Tale of Sinuhe, some theologians have entertained the thought that Exodus is simply a literary work of art much along the lines of the tale of Sinuhe. The author disputes this thinking, citing both similarities and important differences between the two narratives.
This article is a Bible study on 1 Corinthians 14:1-40.
