1. How can we discern between true and false
     prophets?

     All prophets claim to be “true.” But the Bible gives us at least 5 tests for genuineness--

     A. Moral Character of the Prophet (Matt. 7:17-20).

     B. Spiritual Nature of the Prophecy (cf. Deut. 13:1-3; Jer. 28:8).).

     C. Authentication by Signs (Elijah and Elisha are examples)

     D. Discernment by the People (It is not possible to fool all God’s people all the time).

     E. Fulfillment in History (I Kings 22:28; also Deut. 18:21-22).
