A study through the 12-books at the end of the Old Testament known as “the Minor Prophets”. You will be pleased by how much easier these often-overlooked books of the Bible are to understand with a little context. Plus you will be learn & be convicted by how relevant and timely their messages still are to believers today.
The Minor Prophets is a collection of twelve (12) Old Testament books, known simply as “the Twelve” or “the Book of the Twelve” in the Hebrew Bible. The title “minor” refers to length, not significance. Roughly in chronological order, each of these short books gives a glimpse into the spiritual landscape and history of Israel, challenging the status quo through prophets called to speak on God’s behalf.
The Book of JOEL … The dominant theme is the “day of the Lord.” This describes a time when the presence of the Lord brings judgment and/or deliverance and blessing, depending on the circumstances. Therefore, although “The Day” results in destruction for the nations, it can also be seen as a time of salvation for God’s people.
