Tradition in Transition Haggai and Zechariah 1-8 in the Trajectory of Hebrew Theology

by Mark J. Boda

Part of the The Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies Series

Tradition in Transition Haggai and Zechariah 1-8 in the Trajectory of Hebrew Theology Synopsis

Hebrew tradition presents Haggai and Zechariah as prophetic figures arising in the wake of the Babylonian exile with an agenda of restoration for the early Persian period community in Yehud. This agenda, however, was not original to these prophets, but rather drawn from the earlier traditions of Israel. In recent years there has been a flurry of scholarly attention on the relationship between these Persian period prophets and the earlier traditions with a view to the ways in which these prophets draw on earlier tradition in innovative ways. It is time to take stock of these many contributions and provide a venue for dialogue and evaluation.
