March With The Minors

March 2019 saw the blog explore the so-called Minor Prophets. It was a journey of discovery – Why was Nahum so hung up with Nineveh? Who would have thought Habakkuk and Malachi would have that kind of reflective relationship? Is Jonah really the worst of all time? Haggai and his house building priorities was not appreciated like this before. As for Zechariah … wowsers.

That was just some of the things touched on in this series. By no means presenting itself as a thorough comprehensive study of the books, this March with the Minor Prophets offers insight into knowing more of God and seeing the human condition. The March was not just to study what happened then dispassionately. The point of the prophetic is God communicating – and the outstanding thing about what He communicated then is how on point it could be both for that time and in being fulfilled with Jesus and points of application for us today.

One thing this series encourages is for you to check these prophets for yourself and get the direct challenge and joy of reading these words for yourself!
