Prophets

QuestionAnswer
Jonah He did not want to go to Nineveh (Assyria), as this nation was the chief enemy of Israel. Although they repented, the people quickly reverted to their evil ways.
Hosea He is commanded by God to take Gomer to be his wife, who in time leaves him to pursue “other lovers.” God commanded him to then “buy” back his now prostitute wife to demonstrate Israel’s idolatry and God’s faithfulness.
Amos Amos’ vision: God will reunite and rebuild the house of David. (Amos 9:11-12) Interestingly, Amos quoted making it very clear that – with the coming of Jesus and the inclusion of the Gentiles– David’s house is being rebuilt in Christ. (Acts 15:16-21)
Obadiah Obadiah prophesies against Edom (the descendants of Esau), who was a source of conflict for the Israelites. The Edomites rejoiced over the destruction of Israel by foreign invaders, but God rebukes them and assures them of their destruction.
Joel In spite of impending judgment, God will restore His people and dwell with them. This message is conveyed with the promise of the Spirit (Joel 2:28-32), which Peter quotes in Acts 2:17-21.
Micah Micah announces the coming “Deliverer” despite impending doom. Micah notes where the Messiah will come from (Bethlehem) (Micah 5:1-5)
Nahum Nahum is a prophet to the Assyrians. Much like Jonah, he is to call this “enemy nation” to repentance.
Zephaniah Despite impending exile, God promised to Israel that He would judge the nations and rescue them. In fact, when the remnant returns, “He will rejoice over [them] with singing.” (Zephaniah 3:13-17) Hence the song, I Hear God Singing To Me.
Habakkuk Habakkuk says that God will not allow evil to continue unchecked. God is pictured as a “divine warrior” taking vengeance on evildoers. (Habakkuk 2:1-17) God promises that despite evil men prospering, God will exalt His people. (Habakkuk 3:1-7)
Haggai Haggai says God encouraged the people (especially Zerubabbel and Joshua) that the second Temple was a “greater Temple” to come – Christianity (“the desired of all nations” – Haggai 2:6-9); so the “first Temple” represented the Jewish nation.
Zechariah Haggai (old- 90 years old) and Zechariah (young prophet) Zechariah’s message (like Haggai’s) is about God’s protection and restoration of His people. King + priest = Jesus who will build the Temple of the Lord (Zechariah 3:8-10; 6:11-15)
Malachi Malachi speaks out against contemptible sacrifices, divorce and the lack of tithes and offerings. Malachi also predicts a “forerunner” who will come before the Lord’s visitation- John the Baptist. (Malachi 3:1; 4:5-6) (Matthew 17:11-13)
