Editorial reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to vividly depict the works of scripture. He speaks in a pleasant, friendly voice but with authority, frequently incorporating contemporary references. The programs are a lively combination of a sermon and college lecture.

In this episode, Dr. Creasy discusses Introduction to the Prophets.

Publisher's summary

As we move through the Bible, we encounter both oral and writing prophets. Elijah and Elisha, for example, are oral prophets, neither one writes anything that we know of. We simply have their stories in 1 & 2 Kings, stories about what they said and did. Writing prophets, on the other hand, write books. Prophets like Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel and the twelve Minor Prophets commit what they have to say to writing, sometimes in long books like Isaiah (66 chapters), and other times in short books like Obadiah (1 chapter).

Whether oral or writing, major or minor, prophets are not fortunetellers who look down the long corridor of history and predict things. Rather, a prophet always speaks or writes into his own historical context: What he says will always have an immediate application during the time in which he lives. In this lecture we will meet the writing prophets and we will learn how to read them.
