Resumo

LOMBAARD, Christo J.S.. The exile of the patriarchs amongst the prophets: A new beginning or first beginnings?. Verbum Eccles. (Online) [online]. 2010, vol.31, n.1, pp. 1-5. ISSN 1609-9982.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/ve.v31i1.408.

Usually, the primary texts on the patriarchs of the Old Testament are considered to be those in Genesis, not only as to the extent of the material offered, but also regarding the dating accorded the patriarchs in relation to the texts concerned. References to the Old Testament patriarchs in the prophetic texts are often considered to be on the margins. In this article, this 'exile' is reversed, at least as far as the dating of the patriarchs in relation to textual references to them are concerned. Repatriating the importance of the earliest prophetic mention of the patriarchs makes possible new insights into where the patriarchs could most plausibly fit into the religious history of ancient Israel.

Palavras-chave : Patriarchs; Prophets; Hosea 12; dating of texts; dating of traditions.
