The message of Amos lands on the global church today with as much force and necessity as it landed on the people of God 2, years ago. The key idea in Amos is that God is just and impartial and will judge not only the nations but also his own people for their life of ease and apathy amid human suffering.

Amos, a Judaean prophet from the village of Tekoa, was active in the northern kingdom of Israel during the reign of Jeroboam II (c. – Amos, herdsman of Tekoa, was sent from God with a powerful message of correction for the ancient House of Israel.

In spite of withering opposition, he fearlessly indicted the nation for its hollow, meaningless piety, social injustice and general immorality. Amos' message must not be lost on our modern generation. Message of Amos book am no prophet," protested Amos, "nor a prophet's son; but I am a herdsman.

The Book of Amos, which is the earliest of the prophetic writings to be preserved in book form, consists of nine chapters. Not all of the material found in these chapters came from Amos himself. Editors and copyists added comments to the prophet's original oracles that they deemed appropriate in light of events that occurred after his death.

Title: As with each of the Minor Prophets, the title comes from the name of the prophet to whom God gave His message (). Amos’ name means “burden” or “burden-bearer”.

The task is both historical and hermeneutical. This article also will deal with the message of the whole book of Amos in its contemporary setting and attempt to interpret that message for the modern world.

Critical questions about the history of Israel and the composition of Amos. Author: Amos identifies the author of the Book of Amos as the Prophet Amos. Date of Writing: The Book of Amos was likely written between and B.C.

Purpose of Writing: Amos is a shepherd and a fruit picker from the Judean village of Tekoa when God calls him, even though he lacks an education or a priestly background. Amos' mission is directed to his neighbor to the north, Israel. As it is presented in this book, Amos’s message is one of almost unrelieved gloom (but see –15).

A later appendix (–15), however, ends the book on a hopeful note, looking beyond the judgment that had already taken place in fulfillment of Amos’s word. The Book of Amos may be divided as follows: Editorial Introduction (–2).

The Book of Amos, Chapters 3 & 4 Transcript: We are taking our second look at the Book of Amos. Amos was an Old Testament Prophet, and his book is found near the very end of the Old Testament. We saw last week if you were here that Amos was a farmer and he came from the South. The book of Amos was written during the era of divided kingdoms of Israel but in an age which is much prosperous than the previous times especially the Northern kingdom of Isreal with ruler Jeroboam II reached at such a level of growth and prosperity as was not seen after David and Solomon.

Message of Amos 8. The book of Amos is a prophecy against the northern nation of Israel announcing pending judgement (Amos ) because the nation had abandoned God. In Amos the prophet tells us that God told him to prophesy to “My people.” Amos reveals that the nation was not interested in hearing from the Lord.

Amos had been chosen by God to share His message of imminent destruction. This was a warning. Israel needed a reminder that even though they were God’s chosen people, they were not immune to consequences.

What Can We Learn from Amos Today. The message of Amos is just as important today as it was when it was spoken to Israel. Amos was a shepherd in a region called Tekoa, about six miles south of Bethlehem.

Commentaries describe the area as somewhat rugged, rocky, and with sparse grazing fields. Shepherds in that region had to make extensive trips to feed their flocks.

In the book of Amos, we find two uses Amos performed: he kept sheep (Amos ). This book provides a detailed exploration of this theme and other important elements of the theology underlying the book of Amos.

It also includes chapters on the text itself, providing a critical assessment of how the book came to be, the original message of Amos and his circle, which parts of the book may have been added by later scribes, and. The Book of Amos is not a closely reasoned book on the nature of God, man, sin, and salvation.

Amos presents no ontological, teleological, or cosmological arguments for the existence of God. He is not so much interested in presenting to his people what God is like as he is in announcing what God is about to do.

The message of Amos is the. Amos came straight to the point and informed these peoples that God does not overlook judgment. While Amos and his message bear a resemblance to others found in the “Minor Prophets”, Amos as a man was probably the most dissimilar of all the prophets. He was a common man; a farmer.

Amos, indeed was a square peg in a round hole. All prophets in the Hebrew Bible exhibit moral outrage, but Amos seems to have been downright hopping mad. Amos lived in the eighth century B.C.E., and though he was from a southern Judean town called Tekoa, he preached his message of judgment and reform to the prosperous populations in northern Israel, especially in Bethel and Samaria.

According to the book that bears his name, Amos did not. Simply reading the book of Amos can be "challenging." Mr. Motyer brings the book to life. This commentary isn't just a look at something that might have been interesting during the time of Amos, it's a valid and usful comment on the condition of our church today.

He's very lucid, and a Cited by: 1.Amos: Israel "Woe to you who are complacent in Zion, and to you who feel secure on Mount Samaria" - Amos a.

The earliest prophet to Israel, Amos's book states the themes that recur throughout the prophets: condemnation of immorality, warning of coming judgement, and an appeal to turn back to God, and obtain mercy.

God is both holy and loving. A Southerner from the tribe of Judah, Amos crossed the border into Israel to preach a dynamic, immediately challenging and socially and politically uncompromising message. But it was more than a just a challenge to social and moral corruption and the need for reformation.
