There is really not very much background information which I can give you about either Obadiah, the man, or Obadiah, the book of prophecy. Obadiah means ''servant of the Lord.'' I have an idea that when he was a little boy his mother called him ''Obie.'' The prophecy which bears his name is concise...

In the Hebrew bible they are known as the twelve. I have said to you that the term minor prophet is a misnomer because we are not implying by the use of that title that their messages are any less important. Primarily they are called this because of the brevity of their messages. But what they had to say was exceedingly important. Everyone of these prophets of God had a point to make. They had a...

TITLE: The Book of Obediah neither identifies the prophet, (except by name), nor clearly dates the writing. There are 13 men names in the Old Testament named Obediah, but we do not have any indication that any of these Obediah's mentioned elsewhere are the Obediah that wrote this book. His name...

Jerome noted that the difficulties presented by Obadiah, the shortest book in the Old Testament, are in inverse proportion to its size. These difficulties notwithstanding, the message of God's authoritative rule in the affairs of men is easy to grasp. I. Edom's Situation Seen from Judah's Perspective...

I suspect that Elijah did not think very much of Obadiah. He does not treat him with any great consideration but addresses him more sharply than one would expect from a fellow believer. Elijah was the man of action-bold, always to the front, with nothing to conceal; Obadiah was a quiet believer, true and steadfast, but in a very difficult position, and therefore driven to perform his duty in a less open...

(12:15) That's the message of Obadiah. Verse 3 contains the theme, ''the pride of your heart has deceived you.'' The little book of Obadiah...

The vision of Obadiah. Thus saith the Lord GOD concerning Edom: We have heard a rumor from the LORD, and an ambassador is sent among the nations, Arise, and let us rise up against her in battle. (Obadiah 1) Who was Obadiah? He was one of four prophets about whom we know absolutely nothing, except that he wrote prophecy. The other three prophets...

The people in Samaria were in a difficult situation. There had been a drought in the land for 3 years; not a drop of rain had fallen. And the reason there was no rain was that God was judging the land. And they were in a crisis, but the crisis was about to end. For God knew that before long the fire would fall from heaven, and then the rain would come. And that's the sequence, first the fire and then the rain. First...
