The Prophets

God speaks through His Word and through people. These people are known as “prophets.” Prophets in the Old Testament used their voices to call attention to God and what He wanted to say to His people. Sometimes it was good – words of deliverance and promise and freedom. Other times, God was upset with Israel and He wanted them to know why. Many books of the Bible were written by these prophets. Their words were often the confrontational truth of God that clashed with the beliefs and actions of the world. In this study, you will look at six different prophets from the Old Testament – Micah, Amos, Joel, Hosea, Nahum, and Habakkuk. These are the small books in the Old Testament that we often forget, but the words of these prophets are so powerful for us today. They each focus on judgment and deliverance in a unique way.
