BIB 6304 - The Prophets

They were also sent by God as ambassadors of the saving grace of God, announcing the Messiah who was to come. The prophetic writings of the Old Testament form an integral part of the overarching story of the Israelites and of the economy of God’s salvation in Christ. BIB 6304 is a designed to provide the student with a deep understanding of these Old Testament prophetic writings and their implications for our understanding of the Messiah of God.
