The Zondervan Biblical and Theological Lectures series provides a unique audio learning experience. Unlike a traditional audiobook's direct narration of a book's text, Obadiah: Audio Lectures include high quality live-recordings of college-level lectures that cover the important points from each subject as well as relevant material from other sources. Designed for the pastor and Bible student, Obadiah: Audio Lectures, together with the accompany text on Obadiah from the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament, brings to light the universal scope of God's sovereignty and mercy. With careful analysis and interpretation of the Hebrew text, professor and scholar Daniel Block traces the flow of argument in the book of Obadiah, showing that how a biblical author says something is just as important as what they say. Obadiah is the shortest book in the Old Testament, and full of warnings against pride and the Day of the Lord. This short book contains important themes that connect to both the Old and New Testaments. Each lecture offers the main idea of the passage, its literary context, the author's original translation and exegetical outline with Hebrew layout, its structure and literary form, an explanation of the text, and its canonical and practical significance for us today. Obadiah: Audio Lectures, provides students of the Bible with a careful analysis and interpretation of the Hebrew text of the Old Testament book of Obadiah, quickly allowing listeners to grasp the big idea of each passage and how it fits in the larger context.

Daniel I. Block

Dr. Daniel Block, professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College, has been teaching God’s Word for more than 30 years.

It has been a special joy for Dr. Block to watch students, who often take introductory courses in Old Testament only because they are required to do so by the curriculum, suddenly awaken to the fact that the Old Testament is understandable and its message is both life-giving and relevant for modern, everyday life.

Dr. Block has published a number of books and essays in scholarly journals. The paradigm for his research and ministry is set by Ezra, as described in Ezra 7:10: he committed himself to the study the Torah of Yahweh, to put it into practice, and to teach his revealed will in Israel. This means constantly asking serious questions of the Scriptures: What does the text say? Why does the text say it like that? What did the text mean to the original audience? What does the text have to say to me today? In order to answer these questions, one needs to understand both the worlds out of which the biblical texts arose and the worlds in which modern people live.
