A Ten-Part Bible Study Featuring Thomas Smith
If we consider that God is the Divine Bridegroom and the Church is his Bride, then the prophets can be seen as “spiritual marriage counselors.” They afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted, calling us to return to our covenant relationship with God. They urge us to repentance, warn us of the dangers of sin, and announce the blessings of faithfulness. Their prophetic words speak to us even today, as they draw us closer to our heavenly Bridegroom.
Join Holy Cross for this Great Adventure study on the prophets, presented by Thomas Smith! Each week, you will come to know a prophet from Scripture and learn how his message sheds light on our faith and our lives. In getting to know these messengers of God, you will read Scripture and the Catechism, while answering thought provoking questions and powerful reflections. Plus, you will learn practical ways to apply the messages of the prophets in your own life.
A study on the prophets has been one of the most requested programs from The Great Adventure. Like A Quick Journey and The Bible Timeline, The Prophets: Messengers of God’s Mercy places the Old Testament prophets in context of salvation history, making their personalities and contexts easy to follow, understand, and relate to our lives.
In The Prophets You Will:
- Discover who the prophets were, what their message was, and why they are important to us.
- See how God is constantly calling you to a deeper relationship with him.
- Discover the areas in your life that prevent you from drawing closer to God.
- Understand how the central message of the prophets is one of love, proclaiming the mercy of God for his children.
- See how their powerful words speak to us today, shedding light on our faith and our lives.
- Discover the ways you are called to be the voice of God to others.
…and much more!
