Michael teaches an overview of the book of Jonah. Well known and widely regarded as a children’s story or a “whale’s tale,” this is a text many of us ought to look at with fresh eyes. It is the living word of God.
Michael teaches an overview of the book of Obadiah. We don’t know a lot about the prophet Obadiah or the exact timeframe in which this was written, but we know a lot about his message. It’s very clear.
Michael teaches an overview of the book of Amos, perhaps the oldest book of the Minor Prophets.
Amos prophesied during a period of national optimism in Israel… But below the surface, greed and injustice were festering.
The prophet Amos strives to remind God’s people who He is, what He has promised, and to contend that He will indeed do as He said.
He is unchanging and His Word is sure.
Michael teaches an overview of the book of Lamentations. A mournful post-script to the longest book of the Bible (Jeremiah), Lamentations serves a sure and certain warning. As God’s people grieve the loss of the Tabernacle, heaven remains silent.
What does this tell us about who God is? How should we read and respond to this difficult text?
The encouragement found in the sorrowful prose of this book may surprise you–and even offer hope: God’s lovingkindness never ceases.
