The Prophets: Messengers of God’s Mercy
Bible Study by Jeff Cavins
If we consider that God is the Divine Bridegroom and the Church is his Bride, then the prophets can be seen as “spiritual marriage counselors.” They afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted, calling us to return to our covenant relationship with God. They urge us to repentance, warn us of the dangers of sin, and announce the blessings of faithfulness. Their prophetic words speak to us even today, as they draw us closer to our heavenly Bridegroom.
Study Prerequisite – None
Weekly Study Sequence:
Home preparation - Read the Bible and answer the homework questions in the Study Set, which are not a test but a way to learn from within the heart of the Church. Not everyone will find every answer.
Small group discussion - Small group discussion begins each class session. Participants share what they have learned and glean from others’ insights to get a fuller understanding of the passages they have read.
Review of Responses - Responses are provided to the Study Set questions as an aid to the group’s discussion.
DVD Lecture - The DVD lecture presentation follows the homework and group discussion for the fullness of what can be learned.
