The prophet Amos takes some heat from the religious establishment of Northern Israel. This passage weaves the tale of a disingenuous priest, an absent monarch, and an “unofficial” prophet. These political tensions reveal more than just Amos’ resolve. The curtain is also pulled back to see more of Amos—his backstory.
Scripture passage: Amos 7:10-17
