The Life of an Old Testament Prophet

161L The Life of an Old Testament Prophet

When we look at the prophets in the Old Testament, we spend most of our time looking at their messages, and gleaning lessons from them.  This course is designed to go a little deeper into the background.  We will focus on the person and calling of the prophet, and their place in God’s prophetic movement.  In our time together, we will ask—what manner of servant are these odd, outspoken men; how was the culture of the their day similar or dissimilar to ours; and in what way is God calling us to be prophets in our culture today?
