Description

From old Revelation to new takes an important step beyond the studies by Robert Carroll and Michael Fishbane in exploring inner-biblical exegesis. Simon De Vries attempts to solve the problem of ideology and technique in the expansion of prophetic prediction by schools of redactors. By analyzing those prophetic predictions that employ temporal expressions as introductory transitions - expressions such as "in that day," "behold, days are coming," and "at the end of days" - De Vries demonstrates how futuristic expectation was expanded and reshaped within the prophetic collection toward an eventual canonical form.
