Time – 765 to 750 B.C.
The book of Amos was written during a period of national optimism in the
northern kingdom of Israel. King Jeroboam II was ruler, and politically and materially the northern kingdom rivalled the age of Solomon and David. Amos, a shepherd by trade, was called by God to pronounce judgement by denouncing Israel’s luxurious living, idolatry, and moral depravity. Amos urges the people to repent before the judgements of God come upon them. “Seek God and live”, was Amos’ plea to the nation. He also foretells the dispersion of the Israelites, but points to a day when God would regather them in the land of their forefathers.
