Major Prophets - The Adventist Theological Academy

Course Summary

Join Dr. Félix H. Cortez, Jiří Moskala, and Jacques R. Doukhan as they explore the Major Prophets of the Old Testament.

What do I need to know?

The books of the Major Prophets show that God continued to communicate with his people even when they were distancing themselves from Him. Yet, while most of humanity was deaf towards the voice of God, there were a faithful few that were called to be God’s spokesmen in the face of apostasy and exile. Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel have a great message for us. You will also learn more about the circumstances in which their messages were given and the meaning of their prophecies, especially those of Daniel.

What will I learn in this course?

By the end of this course, you should have a basic understanding of the Major Prophets of the Old Testament and their importance to modern Christianity. After completing the quizzes and watching the videos, you will earn 0.2 continuing education units. For more information please visit: ATSAcademy.org
