Background: The Old Testament is subdivided into
four parts - The Law (first five books). History (Joshua
through Esther), Poetry (Job through Song of Songs), and
the Prophets (Isaiah through Malachi). The seventeen
prophetic books are divided into two categories- Major
and Minor Prophets. This division is based solely on the
length of the writings not the importance of their mes
sages. The prophet's role has always been to serve as the
. "go between" for God and His Chosen People. At times,
they also speak to the nations around Israel and Judah.
Called by God, they deliver their messages to kings and
commoners alike ."Scholars believe that there are a num
ber of prophets who left no written records" (Richards*
Complete Bible Handbook). Each
prophet speaks on the conditions of
their day. It isn't uncommon for the
prophet to live in one kingdom yet
serve in the other. Pretty much the
prophets warn of the coming judg
ment, encourage repentance, instruct,
and comfort. For this summer, our
theme is "God's Prophets Demand
The book of Amos was penned by
a common man from Tekoa. This
t miles south of Bethlehem and eleven
miles from Jerusalem. He was a shepherd who also cared
for sycamore trees. Amos was called to minister to Israel
primarily. He also addressed Judah during the reign of
Uzziah (792-740 BC). Jeroboam II was reigning in Israel
(793-754 BC). Both kingdoms enjoyed prosperity as their
military might and political stability stood out among the
nations. As they became more prosperous, they slipped
from God's favor and turned their backs on Him. Their
worship was empty; they lived extravagantly by exploit
ing the poor; and their behavior spiraled down to immoral
ity. When the prophet used "For three sins., .even four," he
was referring to so many sins that were uncountable.
