The Prophets, St. Ann (Coppell) Tues. Oct. 6, 13, 20 & 27

Tuesday, October 6, 2015 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The Prophets. (Course #603)  The prophets of the Old Testament were special messengers who received a call from God and changed their former way of life to follow it. They were concerned mainly with the requirements of the moral conduct expected from Israel based on the Mosaic alliance: the faithfulness to Yahweh and justice towards the poor, the alien, the widow and the orphan. The prophets were intermediaries between God and his people who delivered his message calling people back to a right relationship. Through the prophets, God spoke condemning rulers’ oppressive behavior, idolatry and lack of faith, advocating for the less fortunate. As social revolutionaries, the prophet’s message represented God’s continual involvement in man’s history and His option for the poor.
