Thoughts: When the rich man had been condemned to hell, he begged Abraham to warn his five brothers who were leading decadent lives to forsake their sinful ways, so they would not go to hell as he had.
But Abraham said, “they have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them.”
How much do we hear and understand and remember from the books of Moses and the prophets? The first five books of the Bible are known as the books of Moses, but who are the prophets? Which Old Testament books did the prophets write? And what is this about major and minor prophets? Were they in leagues, or something?
The five sinful brothers could have found the guidance they needed in Micah 6:8.
“…what doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justice,
and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?”
