We have heard a rumour from the Lord. 1
Obadiah for Skeptics
- The Israelites hear "a rumor from the Lord" telling them to start a war with the Edomites.
- God tells Israelites to "destroy the wise men out of Edom" and to slaughter "everyone
of the mount of Esau." 8-9
- "The day of the Lord is near." If so, it must have
come and past, unnoticed, long before the birth of Jesus. 15
- God will burn all the heathen to death, "for the LORD hath spoken it." 16-18
