Minor Prophets

Written by

This summer our preaching series will be on the minor prophets. When we call these prophets from Hosea to Malachi minor prophets we do so only because their books are shorter than the likes of Isaiah Jeremiah and Ezekiel.  These 12 books represent some of the least known books in the Bible. They range throughout the history of Israel before and after the captivity in Babylon. We struggle with them often because we do not understand their context and because we can become overwhelmed with the themes of judgment.

There are some significant highlights in these books which can encourage our hearts. I think of the faithfulness of God expressed in Hosea's marriage, God's patience with rebellious Jonah, Micah's call to act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with God, Haggai's call to rebuild the temple, Habakkuk's joy in the midst of suffering and Zechariah's reminder that it's not by might nor by power but by God's Spirit.  Over these next few months we will look at significant passages in 10 of these 12 books. I hope you will join us each week or keep track online. I would also strongly encourage you to follow along with the Bible project videos that give excellent overviews of each of these books.
