Amos the Prophet and Mission of Israel


1-Old-Testament-Timeline-aIsrael existed for the glory of Yahweh and not primarily for its own self-exaltation. The credit for burning this idea into the conscience of Israel goes to the prophets of the eight century B.C.E., among them particularly Amos. Here we adopt a literary approach that seeks to understand the message of the book as a whole and will be focusing on only three texts of Amos, namely, 1,2; 1,3–2,16; 9,7 (in my upcoming articles).
