Minor Prophets: The Divine History Within the Human History

Posted on Oct 1, 2012 | 0 comments

“This man, delivered up by the determined counsel and foreknowledge of God, you, through the hand of lawless men, nailed to a cross and killed;” (Acts 2:23)
“I drew them with cords of a man, With bands of love; And I was to them like those Who lift off the yoke on their jaws; And I gently caused them to eat.” (Hosea 11:4)

In this universe there are two histories: the history of man, the human history (Joel 1:4; Daniel 2), and the history of God, the divine history; the former is like an outward shell, and the latter, like the kernel within the shell. The Bible is a record of these two histories. God’s history is of two portions—the history of God with man, found in the Old Testament, and the history of God in man, found in the New Testament. This week we take a look at the divine history, the autobiography of God seen in the Minor Prophets.
