WE REACH the end of the Old Testament today, the Book of Malachi, and with that we have completed our first journey through the entire Bible.
We discuss God’s condemnation of faithless rituals and the priests that perform them, His anger at those who had “married the daughter of a foreign god,” and His promise to return on “the great and awesome day of the Lord.”
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.
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.
