I’m not sure if you have ever looked at much of the Minor Prophets. They are found at the back end of the Old Testament. These are the 12 last books of the Old Testament.
They are called ‘minor’ only because of the length of their writings not because of the importance of their message. In terms of themes, it appears the twelve books can be split into two: the first group posing the problem and the second group proposing resolutions. They come out of a unique period in Israel’s history and speak to a particular problem.
Over the next few weeks I want to take a brief look at each book and see what they say to us now. Hopefully it will spur you on to read these books and to see for yourself their contemporary relevance. It is my undying belief that Gods word still speaks – even today.
