Majoring on the Minor (Prophets)

Apr 21, 2024    Bill Brown

The so-called “Minor Prophets” are anything but minor. As a collection, they speak with a unified voice the message of God to a wayward people during the most tumultuous times in Israel’s history.

To know these prophets and their message, one must understand the context into which they speak, their place within the history of Israel and Judah, and their place within the revelation of God’s Word.

The truth of their message, while cast within an ancient context, is relevant for today. It informs the people of God with a knowledge of the character and ways of God, challenges the church with a call to a higher social ethic, and comforts the people of God with a message of hope and restoration.

In other words, these Minor Prophets carry Major Truth.
