    postexilic writing” (201). Because of this, the placement of this book is recognized in two separate times. According to Mickal, the Hebrew Bible places the book of Joel with the Minor Prophets, after Ezekiel & Hosea but before Amos, while the English and Greek Bible places it after Daniel and Hosea, but before Amos (2004). According to James L. Crenshaw, the prophet is addressing the kingdom of Judah (2008). This chapter focuses on the importance for the elderly to illustrate Judah’s past to the younger generations (Crenshaw, 2008). Crenshaw also explains how Joel is trying to get the people of Judah to fast and pray (2008). In addition, David Malick conveys the purpose of this book of Joel was his plea for the people of southern Judah to repent for their sins in order to prepare for the Day of the Lord, a day of destruction (2004). However, Malik does inform us that Joel brings hope to the people by letting them know that God will restore Judah in the future (2004). In the chapter of Joel, the book explains the terrible transgressions of the people of Judah. During this time the people of southern Judah experienced locust plagues in which there was an infestation of locust, people dying, and food shortages (Crenshaw, 13).

    The prediction of figure of the Immanuel in chapter 7 cannot be interpreted removed from the royal oracle of chapter 9. Using the name of Immanuel, the oracle depicts the ideal Davidic king to free and redeem Judah from her enslavement due to her sins against God.

    The Syro-Ephraimitic War occurred in the eighth century B.C.E.
