“Prophets are fools,” you say. “And God’s messengers are crazy.” – Hosea 9:7
Our Lady Queen of Peace – Biblical Studies, part II
When modern folks talk about “prophets” and “prophecy,” they’re often referring to someone foretelling future events. However, in the Bible, the prophets played a much larger role. In the Old Testament, a prophet has the role of holding people accountable to the God of Israel. They do this through the ministry of prophecy.
Throughout the months of February 2020 we will study the historical, literary, and theological aspects of Prophetic Literature in the Old Testament. Hence, we will make attempts to…
(1) describe the major issues and themes of Old Testament Prophetic Literature;
(2) learn the historical background to and theological issues of the Old Testament Literature;
(3) evaluate / relate the prophetic message to our contexts (life, church and socio-economical issues)
