The Book of Amos is inexhaustible.
It possesses a rich tapestry of poetry, literature, philosophy, ethics, history, culture, spiritual context, and theology.
It is perhaps the single most important Book in the Old Testament for life in the Middle East before the Exile.
This is particularly important for Christian Theology because without his insight we fail in fully apprehending life pre and post the Exile. Like volcanic lava, this period shaped the spiritual landscape for our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ – especially his moral and ethical teaching. In fact the writer of the Book of Revelation will go on to use his format as a template for his oracle to the early church.
Over the last couple of months I have taken Healingsprings Fellowship on a journey in an attempt to project Amos’ theology, prophecy, visions and teaching into the 21st Century. This is in the hope that his ideas will challenge our thinking, and permeate every facet of our lives.
So, in crystallising this seminal piece of Hebrew literature, this Sunday I’ll be treating his: Vision of the Altar, post-exilic prophecy, and other key themes.
