Liguori Catholic Bible Study
Author William AndersonWho are the minor prophets?
How did Israel find hope amid war, occupation, and exile? how was the temple in Jerusalem destroyed and rebuilt?
How does lectio divina move us to pray with scripture?
The minor prophets - bringers of oracles, parables, and poems - were named "minor" not for their lack of significance but for the briefness of their texts. Like Jonah in the fish, they confess sin and foresee judgment but emerge from the darkness to tell of forgiveness, restoration, abundant blessings, and salvation. Like the temple, which was rebuilt, the loyalty of the Lord will grow and prosper.
The narrative, study questions, reflections, key notes, prayers and an introduction to the spiritual practice of lectio divina will deepen your understanding of scripture.
