The Minor Prophets: Zephaniah

The Day of the Lord. Sounds ominous, doesn’t it? No minor prophet mentions this event more than Zephaniah, and for good reason. Zephaniah prophesied in Jerusalem during a time when the nation of Judah was in rebellion against the Lord. Judgment was delayed, but it was definitely on its way. We know more about Zephaniah […]

The Minor prophets: Habakkuk

Have you ever looked at the world around you and wondered what was going on? More than that, have you ever wondered how God could possibly allow some things to happen? I would dare say that over the last couple years every single one of us have had thoughts like these. If you have then […]

The Minor prophets: nahum

My favorite genre of books or movies is action. There is nothing quite like the intensity of watching an action scene unfold before your eyes. If you are also a fan of the action genre then the book of Nahum is for you. No doubt, the mention of “action” in relation to the Bible is […]

The Minor Prophets: Micah

Rich with information. That is probably the most accurate description for the book of Micah. From the very beginning of the book the prophet gives us plenty of information. He even tells us exactly when he prophesied, which was during the successive reigns of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah in the kingdom of Judah. Each chapter […]

The Minor Prophets: Jonah

The book of Jonah is different than just about every other prophetic book in the Bible. The other prophetic books mainly deal with God’s relationship with Israel and Judah, with the possible exception being Obadiah who mainly deals with Edom. However, Jonah is even different than Obadiah in that he is not sent on a […]

The Minor Prophets: Obadiah

Obadiah is one of the shortest books in the entire Bible. However, just because it is short does not mean that it has nothing to say. One of the things I have learned in my study of the minor prophets is that most of the books are short but very impactful. Even if they seem […]

The Minor Prophets: Amos

Amos is one of my favorite books in the entire Bible. If you have never read it I would highly encourage you to check it out. Like most of the other minor prophets it is not a long read, and you will see that it is extremely relevant even for us today. The book of […]

The Minor Prophets: Joel

The prophet Joel is one of the most unknown characters in the entire Bible. We know that he was the son of Pethuel and that he ministered to the kingdom of Judah…and that’s about it. It’s impossible to even date the book because he doesn’t really give us any dating details. The book of Joel […]

The Minor Prophets: Hosea

How far would you go to save a friendship or your marriage? How would you feel if you found out your spouse was cheating on you? These are the very personal, but very real questions that the book of Hosea poses and seeks to answer. When most people think of this book they think of […]

The Minor Prophets: Introduction

Lately I have found myself more and more interested in obscure portions of scripture. In other words, I desire to study parts of scripture to which most people don’t pay attention. Everyone knows about the Major Prophets and most of the books in the New Testament. However, very few people know anything about books like […]
