Obadiah: The House of Esau

Click here to listen to the prophecy of Obadiah, narrated by our teacher, B. David Truksa.

On December 9, 2020, we began a thorough, word-for-word examination of the text of the Old Testament prophet, Obadiah. We finished the study on February 24, 2021, nearly three months later. I personally want to encourage you to read the book through a few times (say, two or three) before you get started with the study, to fix in your mind what Obadiah says, even if you don’t understand what it means yet.

Then, study along with us. Click on the title of the study to listen to the message, and click on the link below each message to download the complete study notes for that lesson in .PDF format. For some lessons, a Powerpoint presentation will be used as well. In those cases, an additional link below the notes will allow you to download a .PDF of the Powerpoint as well.

As always, questions or comments can be directed to our teacher at:
bdavid@studentsofthescripture.org.

NOTE: This study began as a study of the prophet Joel, but as the Holy Spirit led, we decided to apply the introductory material to Obadiah, and begin there instead. Reference is made to this change in Study 3.
