Bible Study - The Minor Prophets

The writer-prophets, from Amos down to Malachi, exercised their ministry over a long period of time—from the eighth century to the fourth century BC. These were eventful years for Israel. These prophets buoyed up their listeners’ hopes by means of oracles of denunciation and salvation, using contemporary events as the basis for what gave them to say. Through these prophets, God formed his people in the hope of ultimate salvation, in the expectation of a new and everlasting Covenant intended for all.

Join us as we see how the early Christian communities would be convinced that the prophets’ message about definitive salvation found its fulfilment in Christ Jesus, the Messiah and Savior of all mankind.  These prophets might be considered ‘Minor’ in terms of length of their writing but are certainly not unimportant in terms of the impact of God’s message that they bring.
