​This quarter introduces the ministry of the Old Testament prophets. God employs people who live among Israel and Judah to be spokespersons for God. A formal representative of God, the prophet has a message meant to effect social change that conforms to God's desired standards as prescribed under the Law.

Unit I, "Faithful Prophets," has four sessions drawn from Exodus, Deuteronomy, Joshua, 1 and 2 Kings, and explores the reasons prophets were necessary in Israel's history. Moses leads the people out of Egypt, thus fulfilling God's promise to bring the people back to Canaan. In Deuteronomy, Moses gives the people God's promise to give them prophets who will speak God's word to them. Stories about Joshua, Huldah, and Elijah illustrate the fulfillment of God's promise given through Moses.

Unit II, "Prophets of Restoration," has four sessions, which reveal the compassion of God during the times in Israel's history when the people continually forsook the ways of God. On Easter, Isaiah's prophetic writings and the book of Luke are used to portray Jesus as the Suffering servant and the one through whom believers receive salvation. Passages from the prophecies in Ezra, Nehemiah, and Lamentations show the faith of the prophets as they presented new hope to the Israelites.

Unit III, "Courageous Prophets of Change," has five sessions, which show the boldness of God's prophets in I Kings, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Jonah. Israel and Judah were released from captivity and charged to rebuild Jerusalem. God sent prophets to call the people to restore their covenant relationship with God. When the people strayed away from their covenant with God, the prophets called them back.
