Event description

Description

What can the Old Testament prophets teach us? It’s easy to think of them as remote and severe, but Janet Tollington says they can continue to speak to us vividly, not always telling us what we want to hear but always bringing good news.

In this study afternoon we will explore what a prophet is, how they communicate God’s word to us, and what they can teach us about how to tell true prophets from false in our own times. We will look in particular at Isaiah, a collection of writings by prophets of the 8th-5th centuries BC speaking into very specific circumstances, and Jeremiah, a book about the nature of prophecy itself.

The Revd Dr Janet Tollington is an Old Testament scholar and a Minister in the United Reformed Church. She has taught Hebrew and Old Testament at Westminster College Cambridge within the Cambridge Theological Federation, an ecumenical body for lay and ordained ministry training. A much-loved teacher, she is in high demand as a speaker.
