The Prophet Amos

Recorded October 23rd 2012

Amos is notable as a prophet of social justice. He often criticizes the wealthy for their neglect of the poor, for example, “we will buy the lowly man for silver, and the poor man for a pair of sandals.” Amos is full of threats of doom and destruction, which is ameliorated only in the last eight verses of the book, which expresses a messianic hope, thought be some commentators to be added by another author.
