This collection of essays examines the interrelationships between text and image particularly the ways in which iconography and/or references to images are used to depict prophetic actions or support prophetic messages. Textual and iconographic remains are examined from Israel and Judah, Egypt, Greece and Persia, often with direct relationship with Israelite and Judean religion and prophetic activity. This volume originated in the Prophetic Texts and Their Ancient Contexts session in the 2005 Society of Biblical Literature Annual Meeting. This richly-illustrated volume includes images from the Near Eastern and Mediterranean areas, and include Judean rosette seal impressions, representations of Ishtar, Achaemenid royal iconography, Minoan gold rings, cylinder impressions and various reliefs.
