This thesis seeks to examine the possibility of making connections between the prophetic ministry of Jesus and the prophetic ministry of today's Church. In Part One of my thesis this examination takes the form of an historical investigation of the life of Jesus the Galilean with all its various influences (political, social, religious, economic). After seeking to determine the background to the prophetic ministry of Jesus, I will then examine particular related themes byway of an exegesis of various Gospel texts. In Part Two of my thesis I will relate the fruit of this study to the on-going life of a Church of Scotland parish church. This is achieved through the delivery of a series of sermons based on the themes chosen. Reactions to these sermons were gathered by interviewing selected church members in the hope of trying to forge some connections between the context and message of Jesus the Prophet and the context and message of what I term 'the Prophetic Church' in the contemporary world.
