Commentary on the Prophets of the Old Testament, vol. 1


Williams and Norgate 1875

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Well-known Biblical scholar Georg Heinrich Ewald takes an in-depth look at the prophets of the Old Testament. The Old Testament prophets are a large and much discussed part of the Old Testament writings, and Ewald presents a critical commentary series unique in historical context and writing style. This exceptional set introduces each prophet in historically chronological order, rather than presenting a more traditional Biblically ordered listing.

A professor of both theology and philosophy, Ewald was associated with both the Protestant association and the Hanoverian Church of Germany. His writings on the Old Testament come from his extensive studies in the Hebrew language and research on the topic of the chronology of the Old Testament.

Volume 1 of Georg Heinrich Ewald’s works contains an introduction to the canonic Old Testament prophets, including their historical importance and an introduction to the writing style with which they communicated. Earlier prophets such as Joel, Amos, and Hosea are discussed after the introduction.
