    Obadiah: Jesus, our Big Brother

    Obadiah: Sibling Rivalry

    Obadiah: Sibling Rivalry

    Obadiah prophesies against the nation of Edom. The Edomites were the descendants of Esau, and the Israelites were the descendants of Esau's brother, Jacob. Since the womb, they had been fighting, and in the centuries that followed Edom sold their brother-nation into slavery. Obadiah prophesies doom for Edom's treachery against their brother. Seth and David talk about the way that Jesus solves sibling rivalry and ends the pride of Edom and those like him.

    Joel 2:18-3:14: Your Daughters Will Prophesy

    In response to Israel's repentance, Joel predicts a coming day of the Lord's mercy. Not only will he restore what was lost to the locusts, but God promises an even greater day of God's mercy when he will pour out his Spirit. Seth and David talk about why Jesus doesn't just come once and why the promise of the Holy Spirit is such good news.

    Joel 1:1-2:17: The Day of the Lord (Is COVID God's Judgement?)

    The prophet Joel explains to Israel why a plague of locusts has descended on Israel. He tells them that it is a "day of the Lord." God is judging Israel, and this is only the first wave. Seth and David talk about judgment and the way that natural disasters should cause to repent and hope for God's deliverance.

    Hosea 11:12-14:9: Relentless Judgement and Free Love

    Hosea's last oracles of doom are some of his darkest. But his prophecies of mercy are also some of his most explicit. Seth and David talk about God's most brutal punishments and how they reveal God's even deeper commitment to his love in Jesus.

    Hosea 5:8-11:11: Politics and Religion

    Hosea 5:8-11:11: Politics and Religion

    The oracles of doom continue. Hosea rebukes Israel's priests for the way they have enmeshed their worship of God with political power. Israel has taken advantage of her relationship with God. She assumed splitting her allegiance between God and the powers of Egypt and Assyria was harmless. Seth and David talk about the temptation to blend faith and power and how Jesus' Kingdom is not of this world.

So this is why people love Podcasts!

All honesty here, I’d never listened to a podcast, never really hopped on the “podcast train”, and definitely didn’t understand the hype. But then... Jesus. That’s how I’ll describe finding this podcast. Because as I was wrestling with tough internal questions and reading my Bible had become repetitive with no understanding, I found the video section of the YouVersion App and that’s when I watched the Spoken Gospel poem of Job — WOW! 🤯 That poem not only put me in my place— as a Heavenly Father would— but then sent me on a rabbit hole search of “Spoken Gospel” and thus I arrived at the PODCAST! 👏🏽I’ve been listening for weeks alongside reading my Bible and what a glorious sidekick it has been! I’m behind, because I’m catching up on all the old episodes, but it is so, so good. THANK YOU Seth & David! My dream of attending Bible College in pursuit of a Theology degree is being met through studying the word of God at home and learning with every episode you post. Appreciate your hearts to share your knowledge with others and ultimately point everything back to Jesus!
