Amos is the country preacher who came to town - not a professional prophet, but a tender of sycamore fig trees from the little town of Tekoa, just south of Bethlehem. God sends Amos to the northern kingdom of Israel to prophecy against it. Confronting the king and his priests, Amos tells the leaders precisely what will happen if they do not return to God: the northern kingdom of Israel will be destroyed by the Assyrians, and the high priest's wife will become a prostitute in the city!
