Course Description:

The prophets were a group of eccentric men whom Abraham Joshua Heschel referred to as some of the most disturbing people who ever lived. Among them was one who wore a yoke over his shoulders, another who engaged in eating parchment, and one whom God instructed to marry a prostitute. Who were these men and what was their message to the kings and people of Israel? Come explore the themes of the Latter Prophets from Isaiah to Malachi, their significance to Messianic history and promise, and the impact that their message can have for us today.

A further study of the Prophets, including their role in the development of Israel's history, theology, morality, and national hope,& what they have to say to us about social issues, morality, and our relationship with God.
