The Minor Prophets Series
The Book of Obadiah is the shortest book in the Old Testament. Obadiah has a vision or prophecy “concerning Edom.” Edom is the brother of Judah and the issues he has towards Judah is that he does not show brotherly kindness.
The twin brothers, Esau and Jacob became Edom and Judah as they each led their nation and apart from each other. The brothers were estranged but after many years, were reunited.
Obadiah’s prophecy looks at the years before the reconciliation occurred. Edom has much to learn but refused. God is not going to let their sin go unpunished.
