This morning we will travel forward in time as we begin a look at the last three of the Minor Prophets, all of whom have something in common: they prophesied after the exile. So there is no more message of impending judgment and exile for their sin. That’s already happened. They have experienced destruction and a generation of exile. Now they are back in the land of Judah, trying to rebuild what was lost. And the Minor Prophets were there to proclaim the word of the Lord to a discouraged, distracted people.
