Sermon Series August 23 & 30
This year has been one of the most disruptive experiences for us. Many of the "givens" in life became fragile and unpredictable. We discovered how vulnerable we can be to an unseen virus. Injustice, long kept in power, is being confronted. What lessons in life, faith, and love can we learn from our 2020 experiences?

The Davidic kingship ended with the Babylonian Exile. The expectation grew that an "anointed one" (a "Messiah") would arise who would re-establish the Davidic kingdom.

The destruction of the kingdoms of Israel and Judah raised the question of the permanence of the people's covenant with God. Prophets such as Jeremiah and Ezekiel foretold a renewal of the covenant in a gloriously restored Israel.

Increasingly, the prophets also foretold of a renewed world in which God's righteousness would reign over all people. In this and other ways, they thought from the perspective of faith about the future.

In the work of the later prophets of the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), we witness the beginnings of apocalyptic thought. A future is imagined that could be brought about only by an extraordinary act of God.
