Welcome everyone! This week we are looking at Jeremiah 31 v 27-34, The Promise of a new Covenant
Now we have had a look at today's reading, and we understand what a Prophet is and what the term 'new covenant' means let's have a look together at the Bible video below which tells us all about the different Prophets of the Bible.
What did you learn from the video? What is a Prophet? Can you remember some names of the Prophets?
Prophets are humans who speak on God’s behalf.
The Bible names many prophets, but some of the most significant prophets to remember are:
- Abraham, whom God himself calls a prophet (Genesis 20:7)
- Moses, the greatest of the Old Testament prophets (Deuteronomy 34:10)
- Samuel, who anointed two kings of Israel on God’s behalf (1 Samuel 3:19–20)
- David, a king whose Psalms were considered prophetic by the Jews (Acts 2:30)
- Elijah and Elisha, who worked miracles and anointed (and denounced) national leaders on God’s behalf (1 Kings 19:15–16)
- Jeremiah, who warned Jerusalem’s leaders that Nebuchadnezzar would take the city (Jeremiah 1:5)
- John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Jesus Christ (Matthew 11:9–14)
- Jesus Christ, who was called a prophet before he was resurrected (John 7:40)
We close our session with the Irish Blessing:
May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm on your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
May God be with you and bless you,
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor misfortune,
Rich in blessings,
May you know nothing but happiness From this day forward.
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind always be at your back,
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home,
And may the hand of a friend always be near.
May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the sky above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hears that love you.
