Thus Saith the Lord: Malachi

Today is the final lesson in our unit on the Old Testament prophets. Malachi is not only the final book in the Old Testament canon; it is also the final book in the biblical prophetic literature. Addressing post-exilic Judah in a series of six disputations, the Lord through Malachi confronts the issue of true worship as He exposes the people's sin and calls them to repentance. We will close out the unit with a look at what happens next in biblical history as well as how the Lord's promises through the prophets find their fulfillment in Jesus.
