The unit introduces the student to the Twelve Prophets of the Old Testament (Hosea to Malachi), as individual books and as a coherent collection. It helps the student to read the Old Testament prophets aware of their historical, literary and theological nature, and to understand both their meaning for original readers, and their significance as Christian Scripture. Students will develop their competence as careful readers of the text, and be able to show how these ancient texts uniquely reveal and adorn the character of God.
