These twelve short books from Hosea to Malachi are called 'Minor' Prophets not because of less importance than other prophetical books, but because they were smaller in size. Containing just 67 chapters in the Old Testament. They represent some of the most neglected books in the Bible. They are primarily prophetic - both of coming judgement and future blessing.

It takes four semesters to complete the entire course!

 

 

C-025

The Reformation. Around 1400 AD Europe was starting to awaken to the idea that the Bible is the ONLY source for truth, both about God, as well as about this universe and ourselves. But the Bible was a forbidden source for the common man. So it took almost 200 years of reforming at a very high price to get the Bible into the common manís languages, and get laws based upon Godís Law. This period of time is both exciting, and harrowing, since the Catholic Church fought long and hard to retain its dark grip on Europe, but the Reformation had its effect Ė a new world! This class will briefly examine the lives and efforts of people like John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, Martin Luther, John Calvin, John Huss, Menno Simons, and Ulrich Zwingli.
