The Major and Minor Prophets of the Old Testament (Isaiah-Malachi)Charlotte Glaze
This course, the fourth in the Journey through the Bible series, covers the following books and their key biblical principles:
The book of Isaiah, which contains many prophecies about the life of Jesus, has been referred to as “the Gospel of the Old Testament.” This great book emphasizes the help we have in God.
In the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations, the prophet Jeremiah is tremendously moved by Israel’s backsliding and captivity, yet these books also show that there is hope for the future of humankind through obedience to God.
The book of Ezekiel helps us to understand Israel’s captivity as well as to visualize Israel’s future return to Jerusalem in preparation for the future in which Jesus, the Messiah, would come.
The book of Daniel exalts “the Fourth Man,” Jesus Christ, so much that we can see His presence in the midst of our difficult circumstances. Daniel can also help us to study end-time Bible prophecy, because this book accurately predicts the drama of the end times.
In Hosea, Joel, and Amos, we can see that God is forever married to the backslider. They also reveal that salvation is for all who call on the name of the Lord, and that God desires His people to have merciful, righteous hearts committed to following His Word.
In Obadiah, Jonah, and Micah, the prophets declare that Christ the Messiah is mighty to save. These books also reveal God’s promise that in the end of days, the Redeemer will come and restore His people with a rule of peace and righteousness.
In the books of Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah, we see the unchanging nature of God, His mercy to revive His people, and the Savior that He provides, Who still saves today.
And finally, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi teach important principles—that we should put God first and expect to receive His best; that with the Spirit of God in us, we have the ability to do God’s mighty works; and that giving tithes and offerings as worship unto God is our highest expression of knowing who God is and who we are.
