The Spirit of the Lord is on me: The Old Testament Prophets Today
What can the Old Testament prophets teach us? It’s easy to think of them as remote and severe, but Janet Tollington says they can
continue to speak to us vividly, not always telling us what we want to hear but always bringing good news.
Saturday 2 June 2018

In this study afternoon we will explore what a prophet is, how they communicate God’s word to us, and what they can teach us about how to tell
true prophets from false in our own times. We will look in particular at Isaiah, a collection of writings by prophets of the 8th-5th centuries
BC speaking into very specific circumstances, and Jeremiah, a book about the nature of prophecy itself.
