The Bible tells us that these men were evil, corrupted men, and did not walk in the way of Samuel which created a problem.

The book of Micah

I must say that I have enjoyed the challenge of writing an article about each book of the Hebrew Bible.  It has forced me to seriously read each book and digest it so that I can share the bigger points.   Continue reading “The book of Micah”

Jonah and running from God.

We don’t know a lot about Jonah. We know his name means “dove” and that he was the son of Amittai (Jonah 1:1). Continue reading “Jonah and running from God.”

Obadiah

The book of Obadiah is the shortest book of the Old Testament with only 21 verses. For this reason, it is often overlooked and discounted as insignificant. Continue reading “Obadiah”
