This seminar focuses on the theology of certain biblical selections in terms of their impact on developing the life of faith today. Social Justice Issues in 8th Century BC Israelite Prophecy
This workshop course investigates the problem of social injustice in the 8th century BC Israelite society and studies the prophetic response and condemnation of it in Amos, Hosea, Isaiah, and Micah. A semantic analysis of some key words used by the prophets e.g., mip??, ??daqâ, etc. will also be undertaken.
