Title: PROPHETS: MESSENGERS OF GOD'S MERCY, THE: DISC 3 OF 5 - SESSIONS 5 & 6 (Includes DV 62154 to DV 62158)
The Prophets: Messengers of God's Mercy includes ten 30-minute sessions on five DVD discs. Thomas Smith provides comprehensive teaching and commentary on the prophets. These videos are designed to follow the lessons in The Prophets Study Set, which contains the reading assignments, questions, and responses for the study. If we consider that God is the Divine Bridegroom and the Church is his Bride, then the prophets can be seen as "spiritual marriage counselors." They afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted, calling us to return to our covenant relationship with God. They urge us to repentance, warn us of the dangers of sin, and announce the blessings of the faithfulness. Their prophetic words speak to us even today, as they draw us closer to our heavenly Bridegroom. Disc 3 includes Session 5: Isaiah Part 2: Prophet of Consolation 35 minutes) and Session 6: Jeremiah: The Broken Hearted Prophet (40 minutes). Each session in this program includes one set of five DVD Discs and one Study Set with Questions and Responses for Sessions 2 through 5. Each session in The Prophets includes four steps to help you understand the material and take it to heart. It is important that the steps be followed in order, as each steps builds upon the previous one: 1) Home Preparation involves reading Scripture and answering a series of questions which takes about 1 hour. 2) Small group discussion of the Study set Questions is guided each week by trained facilitators who can use the Responses to help facilitate the discussion and is about 40 minutes. 3) The Video Presentation "crowns" each session, providing a deeper explanation of the topic, particularly as it applies to everyday life. (30 minutes) 4) Review of Response: Included in the Study Set are detailed responses to the questions for you to review before moving on to the next session and to keep for later reference.
