Overview for This Series:

Significant interest has been shown in the “Minor Prophets”.  Thus, this series.  It begins with an overview of prophecy in ancient Israel in among those known as the “Pre-writing Prophets,” folks like Samuel, Elijah, and Elijah.  Then a session will be given to the history of the 12 “minor” or “lesser” prophets. In Hebrew tradition, for example, they are grouped into one bock! These prophets span the national histories of the Hebrews, from the United Kingdom, to the division of the Kingdom into Israel and Judah, the Exile in Babylon, and the return from Exile. The Series ends on the Fourth Sunday in Advent with a session entitled: “Messianic Passages in the Lesser Prophets.”
