Bible Book OverviewsSteve Gregg

In his message, Steve Gregg discusses the prophetic book of Obadiah, the shortest book in the Old Testament that prophesies against the pagan people of Edom. Although related to Israel, the Edomites were hostile towards them and even looted Jerusalem, leading to God's judgment falling upon them. Obadiah predicts the downfall and eventual extinction of Edom, while referencing wise men and the restoration of Israel and the establishment of God's kingdom.
