Why were the books of the Prophets recorded?


"This [canonization of Samuel II] was not for the purpose of telling the story itself, like the books of chronicles composed by the nations, but for the purpose of learning the service of Gd."

(Don Isaac Abarbanel to Neviim Rishonim, pg. 164)

מועדים לשמחה,
