The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.   Amos was the earliest prophet whose words are preserved in the form of a book. He prophesied in the Northern Kingdom of Israel somewhere between the years B.C. Amos’ preaching took place during the mid-eighth century B. C., a few years before the prophet Hosea began his ministry. The eighth century was a period.

    We are so blessed to have modern day prophets to guide and instruct us. President Thomas S. Monson has a wonderful gift of telling stories while teaching us important principles. Chapter 2: The Covenant, the Law, and the Prophets For a triple reason, we turn now to certain basic ideas in the Old Testament. The first is the light that the Old Testament can throw upon Jesus as we note what he retained, consciously or unconsciously from his heritage and what he .

    The Prophets of Israel Viewed as a Whole Their Designation The first division of the Old Testament was known as the Law with the second being called the Former Prophets, but these included four books which have already been outlined—Joshua, Judges, Samuel, and Kings. Though these books deal with the history of Israel, they were composed from a prophetic viewpoint and possibly even the. Scholars have emphasized the importance of Amos among the great prophets of the Old Testament by means of various expressions. He has been referred to as the “first of the classical prophets,” [1] Philip Hyatt, “The Book of Amos,” Interpretation, III, No. 3 (July, ), the “first of the writing prophets,” [2] James L.

In the practical study of the subject one semester may well be devoted to a consideration of the development of social institutions in Israel up to the time of Christ, and a second semester to the social teachings of the prophets, of the sages, and of Jesus.

The study of the apostolic age as a whole would naturally be a separate subject. A Portrait of Jesus: From Galilean Jew to the Face of God is based on the work of Marcus Borg, a scholar in the field of historical Jesus studies. Jesus as Social Prophet Jesus not only challenged the politics of purity, but advocated the politics of compassion.

In one of Jesus’ parables, the rich man goes to hell for ignoring the poor beggar at his gate (Luke ). He did not “listen to Moses and the prophets” (Luke ). And James’s words against the rich could have come straight out of the prophets (Jas ). Prophets help us build faith in Jesus Christ.

Prophets teach for our benefit. Safety comes in knowing and applying the teachings of the living prophets. One of our greatest needs is to hearken to the prophets.

The visit of the Father and the Son to Joseph Smith opened up a new dispensation of the gospel on the earth. And most Christians believe that Jesus lives up to those descriptions. It is even common to read from Isaiah around Christmas and Easter time (such as chapters 9 and 53 respectively).

But I would also emphasize that Jesus is just as much fulfilling everything else that the prophets are saying in these books. Prophetic Books of the Bible Prophets have existed throughout every era of God's relationship with mankind, but the Old Testament books of the prophets address the "classical" period of prophecy — from the later years of the divided kingdoms of Judah and Israel, throughout the time of exile, and into the years of Israel's return from exile.

Like the prophets of old, prophets today testify of Jesus Christ and teach His gospel. They make known God’s will and true character.

They speak boldly. Catholic social teaching is a central and essential element of our faith. Its roots are in the Hebrew prophets who announced God's special love for the poor and called God's people to a covenant of love and justice.

It is a teaching founded on the life and words of Jesus Christ, who came "to bring glad tidings to the poor liberty to.

Scripture Guide. Page 1. n t r o d u c t I o n. Catholic social teaching has been called the Church’s “best kept secret.” Yet, from the beginning of time, God’s call to justice has been clear.

The Law and the Prophets both pre-serve a deep tradition of social justice in ancient Size: 1MB. Five Themes of the Prophets. The prophetic portions of our bible, while they contain some of the loftiest and most beautiful descriptions of God and his redemptive plan to be found anywhere in the scriptures, are yet among the most difficult portions to understand and interpret.

Jesus called for a social revolution in which the people "the people were to enter a new spirit of cooperation and mutual assistance, even in relation to their local enemies" (op.

cit., p. ), while in anticipation of the political revolution to be effected by God. The prophets peopled the pages of Israel’s history. Moses was God’s prophet, used to rescue the Hebrew people from slavery in Egypt and then to lead them to the land God had promised them.

Again and again, these people turned away from God. Moses was God’s first mouthpiece to bring them back into a relationship with God.

Jesus the Teacher (1) Introduction We come now to the moral and ethical teachings of Jesus Christ. In many ways this is the easiest part of the course to teach, and that for a number of reasons: 1.

The sheer genius of Christ as a teacher. Much of Christ s teaching on how people.Jesus’ view of the Old Testament can be seen by the way He used the Old Testament Scripture.

He recognized the entire Old Testament as Scripture, He accepted the two main divisions of the Old Testament, the Law and the Prophets, and He quoted from fourteen individual books of .Prophets have been on the earth at different periods of time since Adam.

This book explains the teachings of prophets that live today. Read the Bible - Jesus Christ laid out the perfect organization of his church with Apostles and Prophets. If you will read the Book of Mormon, you will see that all it talks about is Jesus Christ.4/4(5).
