Amos was a Judean prophet called to deliver a message primarily to the northern tribes of Israel. Politically, it was a time of prosperity under the long and secure reign of Jeroboam II who, following the example of his father Joash and significantly “restored the border of Israel”. It was also a time of peace with both Judah, and her more distant neighbors. The ever-present menace of Assyria was subdued, possibly because of Nineveh’s repentance at the preaching of Jonah. Spiritually however, it was a time of rampant corruption and moral decay.
