What are the origins of prophecy? What distinguished Israelite prophesies from other religions? Why did it cease?
(Malachi 2:10) – “Have we not one father? Has not one God created us? Why then do we deal treacherously, each person against others?” Such powerful prophetic pronouncements still speak to us and to the human condition that exists in the 21st century.
All are welcome. Knowledge of Hebrew is not required.
