Week 6: Seeing Jesus as Final Judge in the Old Testament Prophets
A strong message seen throughout the prophets is that God will bring about His justice in the world. One instrument of that justice is the promised Messiah: the Judge who will enact God’s justice. This week’s readings will focus on how the prophets pointed to the final judgment of the nations and how Jesus identified Himself as that final Judge.
In these verses, look for how God’s justice will be revealed. See how it is unleashed and what matters most when it arrives. When the “Great Day of the Lord” arrives, our hope will be found in our good, gracious and just Judge: Jesus.
