Obadiah, A Video Study
A Comprehensive Exploration of the Book of Obadiah by One of Today’s Top Old Testament Scholars
Designed for the pastor and Bible student, Obadiah, A Video Study, together with the accompanying text on Obadiah from the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament, brings to light the universal scope of God’s sovereignty and mercy. With careful analysis and interpretation of the Hebrew text, professor and scholar Daniel Block traces the flow of argument in the book of Obadiah, showing that how a biblical author says something is just as important as what they say.
Obadiah is the shortest book in the Old Testament, and full of warnings against pride and the Day of the Lord. This short text contains important themes that connect to both the Old and New Testaments. Each lecture offers the main idea of the passage, its literary context and Hebrew structure, an explanation of the text, and its practical significance for both the original audience and for us today.
