Amos 7-9: So Many Dead Bodies

Amos ends with the most intense of his prophecies against Israel's idolatry and her neglect of the poor. It seems like God will undo the covenant he began with Israel when he brought them out of Egypt, even un-create the world he gave them. But in mercy, God promises to resurrect a son of David and restore everything Israel lost. Seth and David talk about Jesus as the son of David Amos prophesied, the final prophet with better news, and the king who will bring God's people back into covenant and back into his Garden.
