Introduces the topic of mantological exegesis, this being the interpretation and reinterpretation of prophecies, oracles, and other prognostications over time. The discussion begins with a consideration of those factors in the mantological materials that make for exegesis, like the ambiguity or absence of a time for the actualization of the forecast, as well as cases of failure of the prophecy to materialize and the need to determine its proper meaning. The mantological materials are also part of the traditum or ancient Israel, and their reinterpretation is part of its ongoing traditio and reception.
