In the coming weeks, we are going to be posting Bible studies from the book of the Minor Prophets known as Zephaniah. It is a short book, but it has a powerful message–one that might prove useful even today. I recommend that you start your study by doing answering these background questions and reading through the entire book in one setting.

  1. Who is the author of the book of Zephaniah? When did he live?

2. When was this book written?

3. Who was the intended audience of the prophecies of Zephaniah?

4 .What does the name “Zephaniah” mean?
