Bible Reading Coach, Week 40 (Habakkuk – Malachi) The Last Prophets, and an Expected Messiah

We know their names, but who were Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi? This week we give them some of the overdue attention they deserve.

This week we will finish our reading of the Old Testament. These books, especially the final three, are not just the last books of the Old Testament, they were the last ones written. Because of this, they give us the clearest picture we have of what things were like before the 400-year gap between the testaments.

As you read, note the patience of God as even the prophets question him, and take note of how quickly we tend to fall away from God, even after he has answered our deepest prayers.

This all sets the stage for why we need Jesus to make everything right again.

The Bible Reading Coach podcast is designed to help anyone read through the Bible in a year. In 10-15 minutes each Friday, I’ll introduce you to the passage for the following week, including:

  • What it’s about
  • How to deal with challenging passages
  • How the original readers saw it
  • How it applies today
  • And much more

After listening, take the next week to read the passage on your own. This time you’ll have a clearer understanding of it.
