LENT COURSE - The Prophets
- Every Tuesday at for 1 hour, 30 mins
- Thornton Le Street Village Hall
- Address Thornton Le Street Village Hall, YO7 4DS
Many of us know stories of the Old Testament, The Creation, Adam and Eve, Noah and the flood, Daniel and the lions, Jonah and the whale, Moses at the Red Sea, John the Baptist, maybe stories to of Abraham, Gideon, Elijah and Elisha; but not so many are familiar with the prophets, except where we hear readings at Christmas and the festivals.
Yet the prophets were courageous in their time, standing against kings and empires, risking their lives and often paying a heavy price. As Lent takes us to the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus, it is right to study those who bore the mark of suffering for the cause of God in earlier years.
Each study, led by Stephen or Tricia, will consider one prophet or leader; it will include refreshments, and finish by 9pm at the latest.
