Amos Overview (Part 1)
In this overview given by Steve Gregg, the prophet Amos is discussed in detail. Amos primarily prophesied to the northern kingdom of Israel, which had become corrupt with the worship of Yahweh mixed with pagan practices. Despite not being a member of the prophetic guilds, Amos fearlessly spoke out against powerful leaders and nations, using repetitive forms of poetry to emphasize his message. The Book of Amos contains prophecies against various nations as well as against Israel and Judah, warning of punishments such as death, exile, and the destruction of cities.
