Unfulfilled Prophecy and False Prophets in the Old Testament and its Cultural Environment

Which prophetical declarations and advices will hold true? Prophecy was an important transcultural aspect of politics and power struggles in the Ancient Near East. The project focusing on similarities, differences and influences regarding false/unfulfilled prophecy between Israel and its neighbors will be part of my current broader research project dealing with the discussion regarding true and false prophecy in the Old Testament and thereby with the processes and dynamics of prophetical legitimization.
