S1 Episode 9: Prophets 
#LongStoryShort August 1, 2021
  1. How familiar are you with the major and minor prophets? What do you find intriguing about them? What do you find difficult and confusing about this type of literature and part of the Bible?
  2. How is reading Prophecy and the Prophets different than other parts of scripture? How do we navigate the near and far fulfillment of some the messages preached? 
  3. Take some time and explore some of the prophets. Pick two or three books. Locate and identify the pattern “Repent – Return – Warning – Hope” in a few of the minor prophets of your choosing. (You can skim a few of them and identify chapter headings to get a gist of the message and flow. Joel and Amos are good places to start).
  4. What do we learn about God from these verses: Joel 2:25-29; Habakkuk 3:17-19; Hosea 2:19-23; Zeph. 3:17; Micah 7:18-20. Do these passages change your conception or misconception of God?  
  5. What is the role of the prophets in the meta-narrative/grand story of the Bible?
