SC641 The Prophets
Who are the prophets? Did they really predict the future? Are they still relevant to our lives today?
In this course, we focus on who the prophets were and the circumstances of their day. We examine the motives of the prophets and how they were received. We look at the techniques prophets used to drive their message home - some could still be regarded as marketing experts! The concerns of the prophets were specific to their era and culture, but many are the concerns of people today. We consider the relevance of the prophets now and, perhaps, see those around us with fresh eyes.
