The Later Minor Prophets (Nahum – Malachi)
The message to Israel of repentance and return remained constant, but the prophets’ methods varied – from questions and complaints to visions and metaphors. These prophets admonished the people in every possible way. This call for softened hearts echoes through the centuries as we struggle with the same sins that offend the same God.
Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi
The scope of these books is broad indeed. Chronologically, they span more than four centuries from approximately 848 to 425 BC. Geographically, they touch Israel, Judah, Syria, Moab, Ammon, Edom, Egypt, Ethiopia, and Assyria.
As you complete your study of these books, be prepared for more gripping and graphic portrayals of both God and man. To add to those you read about in the Early Minor Prophets, you’ll witness Nahum’s stimulating description of God’s power, Habakkuk’s personal struggle with faith, Haggai’s no-holds-barred call to action, and Malachi’s piercing questions penetrating right to the heart of true spiritual living. The setting of these books may be ancient, but their message is modern. You will meet the eternal God in them – and you will meet yourself.
