discussion starters that help participants apply God’s Word to their daily lives.
Nahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah were written to call God's people to repent of their sins, to excercise justice among the oppressed, and to look to the Messiah. Although written against Nineveh, Nahum brings "good news" to believers. In this evil world of ours, Habakkuk declares that "the righteous will live by...faith." Zephaniah points to the "day of the LORD," when His people will be saved and the wicked punished. In this study you will
see how these prophets proclaim both Law and Gospel;
apply their teachings to your own life and the life of the Church;
rejoice in the hope of Christ's second coming on the Last Day.
