Overviewing each of the major and many of the minor prophets, we will examine where each prophet sits in the history of Israel, what they contributed to the faith of Israel in their context and how they looked forward to Christ.

An appreciation for Israelite poetry will be developed as we examine the contribution of the Writings to Israel’s expression of faith. The weekly readings will prepare you to grasp the significance of each book within God’s plan of salvation, to understand the major historical and literary issues associated with each book, and to marvel at the love of God for the people he chose for his own.

This course will revolutionise the way that you read the Old Testament!
