Minor Prophets: The Centrality and Universality of Christ and God’s Union with His People

Posted on Sep 4, 2012 | 3 comments

“And beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, He explained to them clearly in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself.” (Luke 24:27)
“That Christ may make His home in your hearts through faith…” (Ephesians 3:17)

The Minor Prophets, like the rest of the Scriptures, reveal Christ (Luke 24:27). God’s purpose has Christ as its center and its circumference: Christ must be all in all (Col. 3:11)! For this to take place, God is working out a divine romance in which He draws His people to Himself in love to match Him. The Minor Prophets begin with this divine romance in Hosea, and point us to the restoration of all things that will be brought in by our giving more room in our heart to Him (Eph. 3:16-21).
