According to the Jewish faith, prophets were far more than simply those who could see the future. They were people chosen by God to speak for him as his messengers. According to Jewish faith, the prophet Moses is greatest prophets in all prophets, who freed the Israelites from the slavery of Pharaoh and took them to the Promised Land. In Jewish faith the book of Torah is from God. The Talmud is a book of Jewish Law, describing how to apply the rules of the Torah in different circumstances. The female prophets listed in the Talmud are Sarah, Miriam, Deborah, Hannah, Huldah, Abigail and Esther.
