“But let justice run down as waters, and righteousness as a
might stream.” Amos 5:24
The 12 Minor Prophets: Who are these guys and why are they
important? Why are they called Minor?
The Old Testament is full of treasures and precious gems to seek. This is a great place to start mining for gold. By studying each prophet and their book’s message in an in-depth study chapter-by-chapter and verse-by-verse, students will gain a larger understanding of the Old Testament narrative, and God’s overall message to his people then and for today in such topics as social injustice, adultery, vengeance,
redemption, grief, lament, grace, and joy.
Each class we will dive deep into the world of ancient Israel, understanding their times and how it
relates to our own lives. Students will understand the necessity for judgment, God’s use of grace, and how the prophet’s stories and messages can still be applied to real-life situations today.
