In "Wisdom from the Hebrew Scriptures," a Tapestry of Faith program

Description of Activity

Ask: Why did Nathan tell David the story?

Lead a whole group discussion. Point out that Nathan was a prophet and had a special calling to speak for what is right and against what is wrong. The people in Nathan's time believed that prophets spoke for God. Then ask:

  • Have you ever had a time when you had to be a prophet?
  • What made you brave enough to speak for what is fair and right?
