    CURSE ON TYRUS. (9) The brotherly covenant. —The “covenant of brethren ” (margin) was the league made between Hiram and David, and afterwards between Hiram and Solomon (2Samuel ; 1Kings ; 1Kings ).This ancient covenant was forgotten in Phœnicia’s mercantile cupidity, and Tyre was tempted to sell Hebrew captives to Greeks and Idumeans. Amos. Go To Amos Index. 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”. He is not to be confused with Amoz (“stout, strong”), the father of Isaiah (Isaiah ).

    • 8th of 17 books of Prophecy (Isaiah - Malachi) • 3rd of 12 minor prophets (Hosea - Malachi) • 36 Books to follow it. CHAPTERS: 9 VERSES: WORDS: 4, OBSERVATIONS ABOUT AMOS: Amos prophesied in Bethel about B.C. Amos was a farmer who became a prophet. The only time the name of Amos appears in the Old Testment is in the Book of Amos. The prophet Amos records a series of history lessons that will help us evade the pitfalls of the wrong perspective. A number of parallels could be drawn between the Israel of Amos’ day and our time, but it is sufficient to say that the nation had deteriorated spiritually to the point where they “did wicked things to provoke the LORD to.

    The Book of Hosea (Hebrew: סֵפֶר הוֹשֵׁעַ ‎, romanized: Sefer Hōšēaʿ) is one of the books of the Hebrew ing to the traditional order of most Hebrew Bibles, it is the first of the twelve Minor Prophets.. Set around the fall of the Northern Kingdom of Israel, the Book of Hosea denounces the worship of gods other than Yahweh (the God of Israel), metaphorically. The book of the prophet Ezekiel is especially noteworthy as a Covenant Lawsuit since it parallels the visions of John in Revelation (please see the list of visions in Ezekiel/ John). It is very important to note that each of the Old Testament Covenant Lawsuits is addressed to the current generation in the context of the Covenant relationship.

THE COVENANT LAWSUIT OF THE PROPHET AMOS: III 1 - IV 13 BY MARJORIE O'ROURKE BOYLE Toronto The Book of Amos, traditionally a testing ground for interpretive and form-critical theories, has escaped rigorous and comprehensive analysis with respect to the Israelite covenant tradition and form.

This reflects the widespread reluctance of OT scholars. His oracles follow a covenant-lawsuit model, comparable to those found in the annals of Hittite kings (ca. BCE). Amos was called to "bring a lawsuit" against Israel for breaking the covenant.

Comprised of four parts, these lawsuits introduced the plaintiff and judge, as well as the defendant, presented the indictment, and rendered the judgment.

Covenant lawsuit of the prophet Amos by Marjorie Joan O'Rourke, edition, in EnglishPages:   The first seven oracles of the series are seen to be typical oracles of judgment, while the oracle against Israel is a sweeping covenant lawsuit that undoubtedly points back to the Mosaic covenant.

Chapter 5 analyzes the terminology and themes that are related to God, the prophet, and the nations in Amos Cited by: 1. Amos certainly has much to say by way of reproof to “the whole house of Israel,” and most of the first seven chapters concern themselves with the moral resistance of Israel to their covenant God.

However, despite the strong current of moral justice in the Book, when the prophet’s task is spoken of it is mainly in terms of prediction. the book of the prophet amos The Prophet Amos - עָמוֹס lived in the Eighth Century BC and was a common herdsman and keeper of sycamore fig trees () before he was called by God.

He moved from Tekoa in Judah to the Northern Kingdom of Israel during the reign of Jeroboam II and prophesied the destruction of the Northern Kingdom.

the "lawsuit," but other affinities are indicated as well.9 In terms of the "lawsuit," however, the following analysis is possible: the description of the judgment scene (), followed by the appeal to heaven and earth (4) and the summons to the accused (5). The lawyer then praises the plain. The Lord’s Covenant Lawsuit against the Nation Israel - Hear the word of the LORD, you Israelites.

For the LORD has a covenant lawsuit against the people of Israel. For there is neither faithfulness nor loyalty in the land, nor do they acknowledge God. There is only cursing, lying, murder, stealing, and adultery. They resort to violence and bloodshed. Therefore the land will mourn, and all. 2See Herbert B.

Examples can be found in the oracles against Judah and Israel in Amos or the accusations concerning swearing, lying, murder, stealing, and adultery in Hosea Now Amos would come as the prophetic covenant lawyer, bringing the divine lawsuit against the people of God.

In a prophetic lawsuit the prophet speaks on behalf of God-who is both plaintiff and judge, past relations are reviewed-especially recent disobedience, witnesses are summoned, indictments are delivered, repentance is offered.

Frank H. Seilhamer The premise that the rebukes made by Amos are covenant-backed is based on two factors. First, the terminology used to describe the nation's corrup­ tion is frequently employed in Near Eastern and biblical technical covenantal.

"The Covenant Lawsuit of the Prophet Amos: Iii 1 - Iv 13" published on 01 Jan by Brill. Hosea and Amos were contemporaries who overlapped both in terms of historical context and theological content.

Amos is the earliest prophet named in the Old Testament books. He lived in southern Judea but spent his life prophesying about the apostasy of the. The people had rejected God’s ways (Amos ) and forgotten His grace (Amos ), so the fact of His selection of them would not exclude, as they assumed, from being judged for their actions.

Much of what is presented in the following chapters is worded in what we might call a “prophetic lawsuit”. It was essential that these great covenant lawsuit messages be preserved both as reminders of Israel's history and for the promises of restoration and redemption they contained.

Amos attacks two major areas of sin commonly indicted by the prophets: idolatry and social injustice. Amos the Prophet The historical background tend to think of prophets being more like the prophets who had Biblical book named after them, men like Amos, Isaiah and Jeremiah.

The books of 1 and 2 Kings or 1 and 2 Chronicles do not mention this prophet, and he should not be confused with Amoz, the father of Isaiah the prophet.

The name Amos. We will attempt to reconstruct the basic theological stance of the prophet Amos on the basis of the materials in his book and from a study of the history of Israel’s religion.

Unfortunately, we find very little specific help in the other books of the Bible at this point, because Amos is not mentioned anywhere else in the Scriptures.
