Who are these writers? All prophecy is from the mind of the Holy Spirit.
But know this first of all, that no prophecy of Scripture is a matter of one's own interpretation. for no prophecy was ever made by an act of human will, but men moved by the Holy Spirit spoke from God. (2 Peter 1: 20-21)
Other helpful writings were encouraged by the Holy Spirit.
All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in righteousness; so that the man of God may be adequate, equipped for every good work. (2 Timothy 3: 16-17)
There are 1,189 chapters in the Bible. They are arranged by law, history, prophecy and other writings. There are four basic ways to read the bible.
|Torah||Samuel, Kings, Psalms||Isaiah||Jeremiah||Ezekiel||Chronicles, Ezra|
We will use the chronological order, primarily to match the prophet with the kings and the history. We will do a topical study on the Plan of Salvation where we will highlight certain key concepts to help you to understand why God acted the way He did. Certain concepts also establish a timeline in the Plan of Salvation by legally defining the actions of God.

They and his mother thought that he had gone insane (Mark 3: 21, 31-35; Luke 8:19-21; Matthew 12: 46). Prophecy says that he was estranged from his brothers (Psalm 69: 8).

Can you work with the Holy Spirit to tap into this conviction that they are trying to suppress?
