There are 9 lessons in this course.

Lesson 1

This lesson covers the first three chapters of Hosea. They are the dramatic personal life story of Hosea and through it we will learn how Hosea’s life related to the nation of Israel. It is the story of an adulterous nation and a faithful God, yet also a picture of what Jesus did for us when He redeemed and reconciled our wondering hearts to God.

Lesson 2

What is the Day of the Lord? What will it be like? This lesson answers these questions as we study the book of Joel. Joel contains vivid prophetic imagery such as an army of locust that brings judgment from God. Yet, Joel blesses us in that even though there will be God’s judgment on the nations there will also be graciousness to His people.

Lesson 3

This lesson covers the book of Amos. He was a farmer turned prophet from Judah with a message of judgment for those that had turned away from God. Yet he leaves us with the promise of hope and restoration for those that turn back to God.

Lesson 4

This lesson covers the shortest book in the Old Testament, the book of Obadiah. In it the topics of Jacob and Esau, and the old nature versus the new nature are covered. As well as the themes of our attitudes, God’s Grace, and God’s promise to Israel to be in the land.

Lesson 5

This lesson covers the book of Jonah. It is one of the Old Testament books most severely attacked by critics and liberals. As we learn about the life of Jonah we are reminded that many times we struggle to obey God just like Jonah. We will also be challenged to look at how we view the world around us. Do we see people as God sees them?

Lesson 6

Who is like the Lord? That is what the prophet Micah’s name means. He preached during the terrible corruption of his times giving predictions of judgment, captivity, and of restoration and peace. He also predicted that the Messiah would be born in Bethlehem. This lesson closes with looking at Nahum and his message of destruction to Nineveh about 100 years after Jonah gave his message.

Lesson 7

Continuing with Nahum. His name means comfort, but his message was judgment to Nineveh. We also look at the book of Habakkuk. He was a unique prophet because he was speaking to God and not from God as most prophets. We learn from him that the just must live by faith, not by circumstances.

Lesson 8

Do you believe that God can do the impossible even with little things? This lesson looks at that question as the book of Zephaniah and Haggai are covered. Zephaniah brings a message of judgment to Israel and hope to the remnant. Haggai was the first of the post-exilic prophets. His message gives the call to put God first, rebuild the temple, and be pure and God will bless the people

Lesson 9

Zachariah and Malachi are the last of the post-exilic prophets. They continue the theme of encouragement to the Jews to build the temple and be pure. Zachariah gives prophecy that unveils God’s plan for the Jews. Malachi calls for the people to give first to God and be pure, to not rob God of what he deserves and obey His commands. We are left with that same challenge today.
