Bible Study Notes on Amos 2 – 20171025

Bible Study Notes

Amos 2:1  “…For three transgressions of Moab, and for four…” Against Moab.  Moab was the son born to Lot by his oldest daughter.  So sad that those mistakes should have such lasting bad consequences.

Bible Study Notes on Amos 1 – 20171023

Bible Study Notes

Amos 1:1  “…Amos, who was among the sheepbreeders…” Not a prophet by profession.  Some were called the sons of the prophets.  Amos worked at something else when God called Him with a message to tell.

1  “…two years before the earthquake” Either written down after the fact or, as commentary suggests, . . . → Read More: Bible Study Notes on Amos 1 – 20171023

Bible Study Notes on Jonah 4 – 20171019

Jonah 4:1  “…it displeased Jonah exceedingly…” The fact that God had relented of the destruction planned for Nineveh.

2  “…was not this what I said when I was still in my country…” Have to read between the lines here.  Jonah’s a prophet.  His credibility rests on events happening exactly as he . . . → Read More: Bible Study Notes on Jonah 4 – 20171019

Bible Study Notes on Jonah 3 – 20171017

Bible Study Notes

Jonah 3:2  “…preach to it the message that I tell you” We’re not told the message.  Chapter one gives a bit of explanation for the message, but nothing specific about it other than to preach against the city.

Bible Study Notes

Jonah 2:1  “…Jonah prayed to the LORD his God from the fish’s belly” Looking for clues as to whether Jonah was alive in the fish or dead and speaking from Sheol.  Nothing yet.  His body would have been in the belly of the fish at this point even if his soul . . . → Read More: Bible Study Notes on Jonah 2 – 20171016

Bible Study Notes on Jonah 1 – 20171012

Bible Study Notes

Jonah 1:3  “…Jonah arose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD…” Unknown as to the exact location of Tarshish.  Found many ideas, some farther away than others.  One as far as Spain.  I think the idea Jonah had was to go as far away from where God told . . . → Read More: Bible Study Notes on Jonah 1 – 20171012

Bible Study Notes on Habakkuk 3 – 20171011

Bible Study Notes

Habakkuk 3:1  “…prayer of Habakkuk…on Shigionoth…I have heard Your speech and was afraid…In wrath remember mercy” New prayer or actually a song of Habakkuk.  Will be more of praise than the earlier questioning.  Commentaries aren’t sure about the meaning of Shigionoth.  May be descriptive of the type of praise song.  At . . . → Read More: Bible Study Notes on Habakkuk 3 – 20171011

Bible Study Notes

Habakkuk 2:1  “I will stand my watch…And watch to see what He will say to me…” After questioning God about the answer he received, Habakkuk says he’s going to just wait and see what God says.  He expects a rebuke of some sort for the audacity of questioning God.  Wonder what . . . → Read More: Bible Study Notes on Habakkuk 2 – 20171008

Bible Study Notes on Habakkuk 1 – 20171006

Bible Study Notes

Habakkuk 1:1  “The burden…” Message which he had to get out.

2  “O LORD, how long shall I cry, And You will not hear…” I know the feeling.  I know God is there and that He hears me, but it seems like He’s not listening.  How easy to think something is . . . → Read More: Bible Study Notes on Habakkuk 1 – 20171006

Bible Study Notes on Zechariah 14 – 20171004

Bible Study Notes

Zechariah 14:1-2  “…the day of the LORD is coming…I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem…” This would make it the end of the Tribulation week just before Christ returns to earth.
