Zephaniah: AUTHOR: Zephaniah - 650 B.C. - OLD TESTAMENT - Minor Prophet

Quoted index: BIBLEBOOKSUMMARY - ZEPHANIAH:

nkjv@Zephaniah:1 ZEPHANIAH - This book, though brief, is comprehensive, embracing the two great themes of prophetic teaching: judgment and salvation - both extending to all nations. In some great catastrophe of his day, perhaps the Scythian invasion (c. 626 B.C.), Zephaniah sees God’s terrible judgment upon the nations, including Judah. He exhorts the people to repent and assures them that God will dwell in the midst of a righteous remnant following repentance.

Zephaniah @ Jehovah has concealed, or Jehovah of darkness. (1.) The son of Cushi, and great-grandson of Hezekiah, and the ninth in the order of the minor prophets. He prophesied in the days of Josiah, king of Judah (B.C. 641-610), and was contemporary with Jeremiah, with whom he had much in common. The book of his prophecies consists of: (a) An introduction (1:1-6), announcing the judgment of the world, and the judgment upon Israel, because of their transgressions. (b) The description of the judgment (1:7-18). (c) An exhortation to seek God while there is still time (2:1-3). (d) The announcement of judgment on the heathen (2:4-15). (e) The hopeless misery of Jerusalem (3:1-7). (f) The promise of salvation (3:8-20). (2.) The son of Maaseiah, the "second priest" in the reign of Zedekiah, often mentioned in Jeremiah as having been sent from the king to inquire nkjv@Jeremiah:21:1) regarding the coming woes which he had denounced, and to entreat the prophet's intercession that the judgment threatened might be averted nkjv@Jeremiah:29:25-26, 29; 37:3; 52:24). He, along with some other captive Jews, was put to death by the king of Babylon "at Riblah in the land of Hamath" ( nkjv@2Kings:25:21). (3.) A Kohathite ancestor of the prophet Samuel ( nkjv@1Chronicles:6:36). (4.) The father of Josiah, the priest who dwelt in Jerusalem when Darius issued the decree that the temple should be rebuilt nkjv@Zechariah:6:10).
