The purpose of this article is to obtain a general idea of research that was done in recent years on Old Testament prophets and prophetic literature. Due to the vast amounts of material available, the decision was made to rather look at some tendencies and approaches which underlie the research on the prophets than provide an overview of the field. This was done by observing research done by a few prominent scholars in this field of Old Testament prophetic literature, but also to look at some compilations of articles published in book format. This article not only aims at highlighting current tendencies which surface in prophetic research, but also to point to future tendencies that need to be researched with regards to Old Testament prophets and prophecy.
