The chapter analyses stories from the books of Samuel and Kings to discuss the ways in which ancient authors reused literary resources. The chapter looks at two central aspects of such prophetic stories: 1)- creativity in the composition and use of prophetic stories; 2)- limitations of prophetic stories leading to another stage in the larger Story of Prophecy
