Welcome to this research guide for BIB3052/3 Themes from the Major Prophets. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CRA paper.
This course introduces Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel, who are called the “major prophets” simply because their writings are longer than those of other Old Testament prophets. Because it is impossible to consider each of the 166 chapters of their books in detail, we will study only selected passages, doctrines, and events. These prophets were men with a message from God. We will look at these men themselves, their call to God’s service, the task God assigned to them, and the problems and difficulties they faced. Then we will consider the message God gave them to preach: the truth about God, about judgment, and about salvation. We trust that this course will not be just a matter of studying three books from the Old Testament, but that it will have an important application in your own life and ministry as well.
