      When modern folks talk about “prophets” and “prophecy,” they’re often referring to someone foretelling future events. However, in the Bible, the prophets played a much larger role. When the Bible mentions prophets, it’s usually referencing the following: Individuals who spoke on God’s behalf The books of prophecy in the Old Testament If we understand both [ ]. Some of the most sublime poetry in the Bible lies in such diverse texts as Exodus 15 and Deuteronomy in the Pentateuch, to Judges 5 and 2 Samuel 1 in the historical books, to the majority of the Book of Isaiah in the prophets, to name only a few.

The summary below shows the differences between each genre and how each should be interpreted: Law: This includes the books of Leviticus and Deuteronomy. The purpose of law is to express God’s sovereign will.
