The Twelve Prophets #11: Zephaniah and the Remnant – September 26, 2010

“The Twelve Prophets #11: Zephaniah and the Remnant”
Text: Zephaniah 3:12-20
In looking at the prophet Zephaniah, we must also explore the historical events of the day.  Pastor Jon looks into the lives of Kings Manasseh, Amon, and Josiah, and the discovery of the scroll in the temple.  Zephaniah offers strong condemnations and judgments, but a glimmer of hope is provided in the knowledge that there will be a remnant returning to Jerusalem.  In exploring how they got into this problem in the first place, we’re reminded of the importance of sacred space and time, and refusing to allow our worship to be cluttered with distractions.
