From the opening chapters of the book of Genesis, the Hebrew Bible hints at the challenges that will face our species-- using the tree of the knowledge of good and evil as a symbol for the pitfall of materialism, and the tree of life the station of the Word of God. As we progress through its pages, rich detail is revealed, through its multifaceted allegories, history, hymns and stories, which detail a further succession of Divine Messengers, right down to the present day.


Through the teachings of Jesus and the spread of Christianity, most have at least passing familiarity with Adam, Noah, Abraham, and Moses. Some might be familiar with Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and other prophets who worked within their traditions to carry forward and reinforce their teachings. These teachings and prophecies were carefully preserved, and guided millions of believers for almost 2,000 years.


In our modern age, is the study of these ancient writings of interest only to believers, historians and scholars, or could the teachings of such messengers have direct relevance to everyone alive today?


Revealed in those ancient pages is a God who declares that the end is known from the beginning (Isaiah 46:10), and that He has made it known to His servants, the prophets. The purpose of those prophets was clear, they addressed the problems of their time--idolatry and disobedience to the Mosaic Dispensation--to call the people to obedience to the Divine Covenant brought by Moses.They also foretold a time of Glory in, what was to them, the distant future - that after much tribulation their descendents would inherit the promises associated with that Covenant. Their prophetic vision reached across thousands of years, announcing an age of global peace and the unity of humankind.

Could life-changing perspectives await the reader willing to approach these prophecies with an open mind, in the light of that which has been made manifest in this modern age?


Volume 1 of The Coming of the Glory explores the prophecies found in the earlier Hebrew scriptures. Volume 2 covers the pre-exilic prophets and Volume 3 the post-exilic prophets, all within the context of ancient Israelite history.
