Many of us are surprised to see how detailed Old Testament prophecy is about the Messiah, as the prophets are not often studied. The articles for this quarter are intended to help us better understand the life and times of these often-puzzling figures. We'll look at the prominence of Egypt during Israel's monarchy period, and journey to Bethlehem, the Galilee, and even the wilderness areas to understand how geography played a role in historical events. We'll also examine some key themes from several of the books, like the irony found in Jonah and Isaiah's "New World" imagery.
