Thinking about what a prophet was and how they spoke I used the title: “What does a prophet? What does it profit?”  these are the slides from the talk.

Another good place to explore the nature and contents of biblical prophecy is the book of Amos. In this second part we looked at an example from Amos 5:18ff. and applied the “Three Cons” approach. The result was an uncomfortable word from God for us today. Here are the slides from that talk: Understanding the Prophets: Part Two: Amos 5:18ff. There are some podcasts that deal with the book of Amos here.

My commentary with also a huge amount of Bible Dictionary type material as well as pictures and background is here Amos: Hypertext Bible Commentary.
