This paper discusses the prophetic ministry and the order of training employed at the time of the Old Testament. Worthy of note is that, the name given to bands of prophets or “sons of prophets” living together for instruction and worship under Samuel, Elijah, and Elisha. Little is known about these schools, but they seem to have been important religious institutions in Israel and references to them are frequent. Not all the “sons of the prophets” claimed to have a supernatural gift; they were simply trained religious teachers, while some inspired prophets had received no training in the schools. Unfortunately, many finds it hard to understand the school of the prophet, and the purpose of it, neither is the rudiments seen in it at slight understanding. I adopted a biblical and sociological order to evaluate the paradigm and present the schools of the Old Testament prophets.
