The Prophets

God speaks through His Word and through people. In the Bible, these people are known as “prophets.” Prophets in the Old Testament used their voices to call attention to God and what He wanted to say to His people. Sometimes it was good - words of deliverance and freedom, but sometimes...God was upset with Israel and He wanted them to know it. Many books of the Bible were written by these prophets. Their words were often the confrontational truth of God that clashed with the beliefs and actions of the world. In this study, you will look at six different prophets from the Old Testament - Micah, Amos, Joel, Hosea, Nahum, and Habakkuk. These are the small books in the back of the Old Testament that we often forget (or ignore), but the words of these prophets are still so powerful for us today. They each focus on judgment and deliverance in different ways. In this study, we’ll look at how Micah and Amos focus on oppression, Joel and Hosea focus on faithfulness, and Nahum and Habakkuk focus on evil.

Why does God’s judgment seem so severe against the people of Nineveh? What warnings should I heed for my own life because of this?
