Habakuk könyve

The objective of this course is to present exegetical problems pertinent to the prophetical literature of the Old Testament. With its peculiar vocabulary and in most cases specific linguistic structures, prophecy forms a distinctive type of literature in the Bible. As a case study, this course is concerned with the Book of Habakkuk, which illustrates well how this process of rereading opens up new questions for the interpretation.

This commentary builds on the work of previous scholarship and addresses contemporary issues. It gives serious attention to questions of textual criticism, philology, history, and Near Eastern backgrounds and is sensitive to the literary conventions characteristic of the prophetic literature of the Old Testament. The book is an earnest attempt to hear the message of the ancient prophets, a message that remains relevant today.
