Summary: A study of the phenomenon of prophecy as documented in ancient near eastern texts and the Hebrew Bible as well as Greek sources, from the twenty-first century BCE to the second century CE.
Ancient Prophecy: Near Eastern, Biblical, and Greek Perspectives' is the first monograph-length comparative study on prophetic divination in ancient Near Eastern, biblical, and Greek sources. Prophecy is one of the ways humans have believed to become conversant with what is believed to be superhuman knowledge. The prophetic process of communication involves the prophet, her/his audience, and the deity from whom the message allegedly comes from. Martti Nissinen introduces a wealth of ancient sources documenting the prophetic phenomenon around the ancient Eastern Mediterranean, whether cuneiform tablets from Mesopotamia, the Hebrew Bible, Greek inscriptions, or ancient historians.
