The Prophets and Morality


This online independent study course examines the Old Testament prophets as the conscience of ancient Israel and as insightful guides to moral theology for the modern Christian. This course will additionally study the prophets’ perspective in regard to the causes of sin, the motives of temptation, and the remedies God applied for healing. Those who complete this course should be able to discuss the prophets both as powerful preachers against sins of idolatry and social injustice that continue into the present time, and as gifted leaders who understood human nature and the ultimate solution to sin—the Person of Jesus Christ.
