The scientific study of the background and origin of emerging a collection of biblical writings called “prophetic writings” or “apocalyptic writings” and their role in creating historical, ethnical and national identity of the Jewish and Christian traditions, aside from its special scientific importance, contributes to understanding the spirit and essence of western religious and mythological beliefs. These scriptures reflect a set of objective socio-political elements of the age in which the scriptures have been written, and a set of religious, theological and mythological beliefs, which are composed in a special way and considered as a document regarding the spiritual precedent of the two religious traditions. This paper, which devotes to the examination of two major writings of the prophetic scriptures of the Old Testament, is going to describe their principles and structure as well as the characteristics of the messianic and apocalyptic ideas in the Bible.
