1 SAINT LOUIS CHRISTIAN COLLEGE BOT 251N - OLD TESTAMENT PROPHETS Professor Allen Hickerson 3 credit hours Spring 2016 March 31-April 28 Thursdays 6-10 p.m. MISSION STATEMENT Saint Louis Christian College pursues excellence in the Word and develops servant-leaders for urban, suburban, rural, and global ministry. COURSE DESCRIPTION An overview of the prophetic books (Isaiah through Malachi.) Special attention is given to the historical background and to the religious, social, and political message of the prophets. COURSE RATIONALE The Old Testament prophetic books are crucial for understanding the relationship between God and the ancient Israelites, and other nations as well. Much of the message of Jesus and early Christian writers builds upon these books. Anyone desiring to understand and/or teach the New Testament will benefit from studying these writings. COURSE OBJECTIVES Upon conclusion of this course, the learner should be able to: 1. Exhibit an understanding of the messages of each of the Old Testament prophetic books. 2. Place each of the Old Testament prophetic books within its proper chronological, religious, social, and political contexts. 3. Develop and present messages and/or lessons from any of the Old Testament prophetic books. 4. Relate the teachings of Jesus and New Testament writers to the messages of the Old Testament prophetic books.

2 COURSE REQUIREMENTS 1. Attend all sessions for the course, participate in class discussions, and keep good notes of the class discussions. 2. All required reading must be completed prior to the class session in order to be prepared for that session s lecture. 3. Keep a journal throughout the course. The journal must have at least one entry per class session (minimum length one-half page, maximum length one page). Additional entries based upon the learner s reading in preparation for each class session may also be made. The journal is to be submitted at the close of the final class session. 4. Key Facts: Complete and submit the Key Facts page, included in this syllabus. Due at the beginning of the third class session. 5. Chronology of the Prophets: Create a timeline showing the names of the prophetic books corresponding to the dates the prophet was active. Due at the beginning of the third class session. Students are NOT permitted to photocopy other timelines or elements of other timelines. 6. Sermons/Lessons: a. Prepare a two-page sermon/lesson outline from one of the Major Prophets. b. Prepare a two-page sermon/lesson outline from one of the Minor Prophets. These are to be submitted at the beginning of the last class session. 7. Minor Prophet Report: Prepare a four-to-six-page report on one of the minor prophetic books (to be assigned during the first class session), to be submitted at the beginning of the last class session. The report must include an Introduction, Outline of the Book, Authorship of the Book, Historical Context of the Book, Major Issues Concerning the Book, and Application. 8. The two Sermons/Lessons and the Minor Prophet Report are to be prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Saint Louis Christian College composition courses.

3 COURSE ASSESSMENT (EVALUATION) 1. Attendance and participation in each class session may subjectively influence the Professor s assessment of the learner s final grade for the course. Excessive absences, or a learner s failure to participate in class discussions, will be detrimental to the learner s final grade. 2. The Saint Louis Christian College grading scale and attendance policy will be followed for this course. 3. The written assignments will provide the basis for the learner s final grade for the course in the following manner: Journal...10% Key Facts...10% Chronology of the Prophets...10% Major Prophet Sermon/Lesson...20% Minor Prophet Sermon/Lesson...20% Minor Prophet Report...30% The grade for each of the written assignments will be based upon the content and quality of the writing.
