July 2/3 - July 9/10 | #nwObadiah
Each year at North Way, we journey through a book of the Bible. This year we’re taking a “short” trip: the one chapter penned by the Old Testament prophet Obadiah. The book is small, but packed with poetic visions of an escalating, catastrophic refugee crisis. As the people of Israel fled from a Babylonian invasion, how did the neighboring nations respond? How did God’s people respond?
And consider this—many years later, Mary, Joseph, and young Jesus were also refugees. They were forced to leave their homeland, escaping to Egypt in the wake of Herod’s massacre. Many of us now call that Middle Eastern former refugee our Lord and Savior. Join us as we journey through the poetic, prophetic, powerfully relevant book of Obadiah.
