Is the Psalter merely a collection of ancient worship songs? If that is so, why have most Jews and Christians throughout history interpreted the Psalms as prophetic?
As far as I know, David C. Mitchell’s The Message of the Psalter gives the best historical survey of Psalms eschatological interpretation.

Thank you for the this illuminating discussion. i confess after seminary and many decades of study I have never heard the premise of this podcast: Psalms as eschatology. The book appears to be out of print which is a problem. But thanks for the thoughtful analysis. Its also the first time I have heard a convincing argument that favored the LXX over Masoretic Text. Well done!
Hi Randy, thank you for your reply and I’m sorry for my delay.
I’m glad you enjoyed the podcast! Mitchell’s book is very influential and it’s a shame it’s out of print. It’s available digitally on logos. He’s looking to revise and re-release it. His other books are excellent too.
If you enjoy “Psalms as eschatology”, stay tuned! This was just scratching the surface. Once my life settles down a little, I hope to return to regular podcasting and I have a lot in store on the topic.
