Prophets in the Life of a Believer Seminar
The prophetic books of the Old Testament are some of the more difficult portions of the Bible for believers to understand and apply. They are often skipped in entirety or merely skimmed through. Yet at the same time some of our favorite prophetic passage about Jesus find their place in those books. How are we to understand the prophets? What relevance do they have for contemporary Christians? These, along with other questions will be answered during this seminar. As a focus to show how the principles work in real life, the focus will be the book of Zechariah.
