Church Visits Seven Short Prophets
The Old Testament book of the Twelve holds the accounts of twelve
prophets who spoke or wrote between the years of 750 - 200 BCE. They are
sometimes called “the minor prophets” or “the lesser prophets,” and they are
not often read nor well known by Christians today.
Yet, they are not minor, nor lesser…they are simply shorter writings. So,
from May 2 through June 13, Home Church will study the seven shortest written
prophets, one each week. Pastor Mike will prepare and email study guides before
each Tuesday meeting. We’ll encounter:
Nahum, on May 2 from about 650 BCE
Zephaniah on May 9, about 640 BCE?
Habakkuk on May 16, about 600 BCE
Obadiah on May 23, perhaps 580 BCE
Haggai on May 30, perhaps 520 BCE
Joel on June 6, perhaps 500 BCE, and
Malachi on June 13, perhaps 360-400 BCE
All are invited to participate between 3:30 and 5:15 on Tuesdays,
meeting either at the Eggleston - Murta home, or via Zoom.
Come any and or all Tuesdays: each session is its own topic.
