Minor Prophets

Minor Prophets. Hosea means “salvation.” He married an unfaithful wife whom he forgave and redeemed. Joel introduces the great prophetic concept of “The Day of the Lord” and prophecies about the Holy Spirit. Amos means “bearer of a burden.” He proclaimed the coming destruction of neighboring nations, Israel, and Judah. In Obadiah, prideful Edom hated Israel and their doom was predicted. God calls Jonah to preach repentance to the people of Nineveh, the hated and evil Assyrians.

Micah preached God’s judgment on Samaria and Jerusalem due to their idolatry. Nahum predicts the doom of Nineveh, 150 years after Jonah. Habakkuk dialogues with God and receives a vision of the pending woes to come from the Babylonians. Zephaniah spoke of the great day of the Lord that was to come to all nations and calls Jerusalem to repent. Haggai returned after the captivity, and laid the foundation of the temple in Jerusalem. Zechariah also returned to encourage the rebuilding of the temple. He prophesied how Jesus would deliver Israel, be rejected, and return again. Malachi brought God’s people a message of rebuke and promise.
