Bible Study – Minor Prophets

Posted By Fred Lian on May 18, 2017 | 0 comments

We meet the first 3 Thursdays of the month from September to May from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. Be honest. When did you last read a book like Obadiah? Or Nahum? Or perhaps the better question is “Have you ever read Obadiah?” or “Where do I find Haggai”? The Minor Prophets form the last 12 books of the Old Testament and offer great insight into the heart of God for His people. “Minor” refers not to their importance but to their length: All were considered important enough to enter the Hebrew Bible, but none was long enough to form an independent book. In fact, the 12 Minor Prophets might be referred to as comprising the “white pages” of our Bibles, meaning they are probably not as well-worn from use as the pages of the Psalms or the Gospels. One theme that unifies the 12 prophets is Israel’s relationship with God. What does God demand of humans? These 12 Minor Prophets have much to tell us in the 21st century, even though they wrote more than 2,400 years ago. Join Pastor Fred the first three Thursday mornings of each month from September to May to learn from these ancient sages.
