- Minor Prophets - Evening 5
March 10, 2021
8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
While Isaiah and Jeremiah might be more well known, the Minor Prophets, the last twelve books of the Old Testament, represent a substantial portion of the words of God’s prophets addressed to the people of Israel, both northern and southern kingdoms, during the tumultuous years following the rise of the Assyrian and Babylonian empires. Representing a range of personal backgrounds, and speaking to a variety of issues, the Minor Prophets bear witness to the continuing validity of Torah, the Law of God, for the community of God’s people. These twelve prophets address the people of Israel and Judah prior to the Assyrian and Babylonian exile, as well as the post-exilic community which had returned to rebuild the house of God in Jerusalem. Learn to understand and appreciate the historical setting of these twelve books, the cultural and theological challenges facing the people of God in those years, and the literary forms which are employed by the authors. Finally, we will wrestle with the manner in which the respective messages of these books remain instructive and authoritative for the people of God in the 21st century after Christ.
