GOD’S JUDGMENT on Israel and Judah was not going to be pleasant, but it was not to last forever.
This week, we read prophecies of Isaiah and Micah on the coming destruction of the northern kingdom by Assyria and the southern kingdom by Babylon. But we also get several clear prophecies of the coming Messiah, who would gather the remnant of Israel and rule the nations from his throne in Zion.
Paul on Mars Hill
WE CONTINUE our study of Paul’s Second Missionary Journey. This week, we discuss the run-in with the citizens of Thessalonica and why they were upset by the gospel. We also talk about why the Bereans were more noble than the Thessalonians and Paul’s message on Mars Hill in Athens.
THIS WEEK’S Old Testament study is another lesson in how much depth the scriptures contain when we actually look.
We discuss the prophetic implications of Psalms 22-24, the Divine Council references in Psalms 47 and 68, and the setting of the time and place — just after David’s victories over the Jebusites to take Jerusalem and the Philistines at the Valley of Rephaim — in which they were composed.
