The Greatest Story Ever Told Session #10: Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah
We continue working through the third section of the Bible--the prophets. Having covered three of the four major prophets last week, we begin with the last major prophet, Daniel. We then move into the minor prophets and look at Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah. Note that the term minor does not imply "unimportant"--just shorter works. Themes in these books include God's fidelity, judgment of sin, necessity of serving the poor, proclamation of fidelity to God and the metaphor of marriage to describe God's relationship with His people.
