More Information[edit]

I visited the page of Amos here in Wikipedia in hopes that it will help me for one of my projects, but it turned out that it didn't have the information I needed. Can someone add in more information about his teachings perhaps that will help not only me but also other people? Thanks! ---PrettyPetiteTalk 06:53, 10 March 2012 (UTC)

Starting year[edit]

The year given as the start of Amos' 'prophetic career' (750BC) is not consistent with either the best estimates for the 'earthquake' (c. 760BC) during Uzziah's reign (791-740BC), nor does it fall within the reign of Jeroboam of Israel (793-753BC). Can someone provide a quote from the cited source, or provide any other justification for why 750BC has been given despite more likely reckonings?!--Jeffro77 (talk) 06:36, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
