God’s people have entered the Promised Land and begin to function as a nation. Kings rise, and kings fall. Taxes are collected, Temple worship continues. The influence of other nations (and their gods) draws the people away from the LORD. Time and time again, the leaders choose autonomy and agency over God’s plan. God responds to all of this with a final act of mercy, kindness, and grace; He raises up prophets to speak truth and justice to His people.
This week, we'll be talking about How the Bible Works to Call Us Back to God and His Plan from prophets Amos, Zephaniah, Ezekiel, and Haggai.
