      We need to know when they lived and to whom their message was addressed.

      We have to know and understand the audience and the cultural context.

      The two most important things to consider when reading the message of a prophetic book is the historical background at the time and the audience to whom the prophet was speaking.

      In order to understand the message you have to understand the time and place of when it happened.

      Two important things to consider when trying to understand a prophetic book are time and place. If one knows the time and place they are better orient their mind around what is going one at that time. The more “clues”, such as date and location, can help with the comprehension of what the prophetic book is teaching.

      In order to understand a prophetic book, it’s very important to understand the time and place of the events when the book was written. That will provide the background necessary to understand what the prophet is writing about.

      Time and audience that the prophetic word was for are very important. Time especially because it is not only important to note the time of when it was being prophesied, but also how time is related in the prophecies. The audience is to show who the prophecy was for. Note that some of the prophetic word of Daniel was shown again in Revelation. So time is still to come in those prophecies.

      È importante considerare a chi si rivolgeva il profeta ed il tempo in cui parlava

      The time and place are critical because they give us an understanding as to the events taking place, and the mind set of the people to whom the prophets are addressing.

      We need to have an understanding of the time of when the prophet was speaking. We also need to know who the prophet was speaking to. Without these guides, it is difficult to understand the prophetic message.

      We should consider the time, culture, and audience of the prophet for us to understand the prophetic books.
