Amos, Prophet of Justice

Lecture no. 15 from the course: Understanding the Old Testament

Amos, Prophet of Justice

Taught by Professor Robert D. Miller II | 26 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Philosophy & Religion Courses

Explore the preaching of the prophet Amos and his passionate theme of justice for the poor and vulnerable. Note how, as an outsider, Amos brings the northern kingdom of Israel to task for its crimes against the poor, seen in acts such as debt slavery, distortions of justice, and the treatment of concubines. Contemplate Amos’s “three woes” against Israel, and also his concluding vision of hope.
