Module 16:  The 6th Century Prophets:  Calling Judah to Avoid Disaster

Despite the Northern nation of Israel being removed because of Idolatry, the southern nation of Judah continues to follow this path. Zephaniah warns of judgment while Habakkuk questions God's means. Jeremiah, the weeping prophet, expresses God's broken heart over his people offering a chance of retrieve right up to the very end. Even amidst the despair of a ruined nation, Lamentations declares, God's steadfast love continues, as do all the prophets with their integral message of hope. The study of Kings is a prerequisite for this module.

Module 16:  6세기 서지자들: 재앙을 피하도록 유다에 외치다

우상숭배 때문에 북이스라엘이 멸망되었음에도 불구하고,남유다는 우상숭배의 길을 계속 따라간다. 스바냐는 심판을 경고했고, 반면 하박국은 하나님의 수단에 의문을 제기한다. 눈물의 선지자 예레미야는 그의 백성들을 향해 끝까지 회복의 기회를 제공하시는 하나님의 깨어진 마음을 표현한다. 예레미야 애가는, 모든 선지서가 본질적인 희망의 메시지를 가지고 있는 것처럼, 국가의 멸망의 절망 속에서도, 변함없는 하나님의 사랑이 계속되고 있음을 선포한다. 열왕기서에 대한 연구는 이 모듈의 전제조건이다.

As the Southern Kingdom moves to total destruction, the message of this mighty but persecuted prophet falls on deaf ears. As you engage with this book, you will discover that you know more about the life of Jeremiah than any of the other prophets, and you will be moved and challenged by the encounter you have with him. Do not let your ears be deaf!


hab zephaniahHabakkuk is the prophet who asks the hard questions.  These questions, you will discover, are asked by many in our contemporary world. 


Zephaniah, addressing a people who were running headlong into destruction, declares the "Day of the Lord".  But "The Day of the Lord" was not what they expected; not a day of hope but a day of judgment.  But in the midst of judgment, hope is close at hand.
