Nahum delivered a potent decree of God’s judgment in three short chapters. His message is clear: God is indeed a God of wrath.
Is it possible, however, that God’s wrath demonstrates His love?
Join us as we explore this very idea.
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 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.
Michael continues our series The Big Book – Cover to Cover with an overview of 2 Kings. In this book we see the reign of 19 more kings in the Divided Kingdom, the transfer of leadership between Elijah and Elisha, and are introduced to a new prophet: Isaiah.
1 Kings begins with a portrait of the king we’re all longing for and ends in disaster. Power un-checked and un-submitted to the Lord breeds injustice and corruption. The nation of Israel splits into the Divided Kingdom and we are left longing for the King who will rule justly, mercifully, perfectly.
The book of 2 Samuel takes place at about the mid-way point in the timeline between Abraham and Jesus Christ.
It’s here that we come to know David, the man after God’s own heart, whose reign is mired by his great failures – and redeemed by God’s great graciousness to him.
