    The Apostle John is talking to a group of believers plagued by the question "Do I still have fellowship with God in light of all my sin?" False teachers comforted these doubters by telling them that they didn't need to worry about their sin. But John comforts them a different way. Seth and David talk about how we can know we are saved even when our sin seems extremely dark.

    John's three letters are short and dense. He's a pastor encouraging a congregation under attack by a group of false teachers, he calls antichrists. In this intro episode, Seth and David talk about the good news that Jesus has come in the flesh and why a simple gospel is the best antidote to the complexity and confusion around us.

    Amos ends with the most intense of his prophecies against Israel's idolatry and her neglect of the poor. It seems like God will undo the covenant he began with Israel when he brought them out of Egypt, even un-create the world he gave them. But in mercy, God promises to resurrect a son of David and restore everything Israel lost. Seth and David talk about Jesus as the son of David Amos prophesied, the final prophet with better news, and the king who will bring God's people back into covenant and back into his Garden.

    In a series of four speeches, Amos pronounces God's judgment on Israel's injustice. With each speech, Amos' warnings intensify leading up to God's call for justice to roll like a river and righteousness like an overflowing stream.

    Uniquely among the minor prophets, Amos zeros in on Israel's injustice towards the poor. He indicts them for their failure to be generous as God had been generous to them. Seth and David talk about Amos' unique emphasis among the prophetic books and how Jesus' generosity transforms us into people that love justice.

    Cain and Abel, Jacob and Esau, Edom and Israel. The biblical story is full of sibling rivalry. Seth and David talk about how the story of Jesus resolves the sibling animosity we see not just in the Bible, but in our own families.

    Obadiah prophesies against the nation of Edom. The Edomites were the descendants of Esau, and the Israelites were the descendants of Esau's brother, Jacob. Since the womb, they had been fighting, and in the centuries that followed Edom sold their brother-nation into slavery. Obadiah prophesies doom for Edom's treachery against their brother. Seth and David talk about the way that Jesus solves sibling rivalry and ends the pride of Edom and those like him.

    In response to Israel's repentance, Joel predicts a coming day of the Lord's mercy. Not only will he restore what was lost to the locusts, but God promises an even greater day of God's mercy when he will pour out his Spirit.

    The prophet Joel explains to Israel why a plague of locusts has descended on Israel. He tells them that it is a "day of the Lord." God is judging Israel, and this is only the first wave.
