Bible Study: The Book of Nahum

The Book Of Nahum

The prophecy of Nahum, written by a Hebrew against the capital of a Gentile world power (Nineveh), is a denunciation of rampant militarism and tyranny, especially as it affects God’s people. Although God uses pagans to punish His people’s apostasy and sin, the tool itself is also liable to punishment.

As R. K. Harrison puts it:
“In this small prophecy of doom the author demonstrated in vigorous and memorable language that the God of the nation whom the Assyrians had despised was in fact the controller of all human destiny. To His justice even the greatest world power must submit in humility and shame.” Continue Reading Here

Bible Study: The Book Of Hosea – Part One

The Book Of Hosea, Part 1

Introduction

“We have in the Book of Hosea one of the most arresting revelations of the real nature of sin, and one of the clearest interpretations of the strength of the Divine love. No one can read the story of Hosea without realizing the agony of his heart. Then, lift the human to the level of the Infinite, and know this, that sin wounds the heart of God.”         G. Campbell Morgan

While the Book of Hosea is not in narrative or story form, it does contain a story, although it is interwoven with the text. Briefly, the story is that Hosea married Gomer and she bore three children—Jezreel, Lo-ruhamah, and Lo-ammi. Gomer was unfaithful, and in spite of this, Hosea sought her in great love, and bought her back from slavery and degradation. Continue Reading Here

Bible Study: The Book Of Amos

The Book of Amos

Lesson 1

Introduction
“Unlike other prophets, Amos was not a man whose life was devoted to hearing and speaking the Word of the Lord. He was no product of the “schools of prophets,” nor a professional “seer.” He left his flock for a limited period, at the command of God, to deliver a specific message at Bethel. That done, he presumably returned to his sheep-tending at Tekoa.” ”
—Herbert F. Stevenson

The book of Amos is written in some of the finest OT Hebrew style. Amos was a sheep-breeder and tender of sycamore trees. Amos, whose name means burden, gives no family pedigree, hence we can assume he was not of noble or prominent stock, like Isaiah or Zephaniah. It has been common for preachers to paint Amos’s “country” background too strongly. The word used to describe his regular livelihood is not the usual Hebrew word for “shepherd” but is used elsewhere only of King Mesha, who had a successful sheep-breeding business (2 Kgs. 3:4). Although he belonged to the Kingdom of Judah, he was commissioned to go north to Samaria and prophesy against the Kingdom of Israel. Amos was a stern prophet of righteousness and uncompromising justice. Continue Reading Here
