Zephaniah

- Zephaniah

by C.I. Scofield

Book Introduction - Zephaniah


Zephaniah 1:1

This prophet, a contemporary of Jeremiah, exercised his ministry during the reign of Josiah. It was a time of revival (2 Kings 22:0), but the captivity was impending, nevertheless, and Zephaniah points out the moral state which, despite the superficial revival under Josiah (Jeremiah 2:11-24.2.13), made it inevitable.

Zephaniah is in four parts: The coming invasion of Nebuchadnezzar a figure of the day of the Lord, Zephaniah 1:1-36.2.3. Predictions of judgment on certain peoples, Zephaniah 2:4-36.2.15. The moral state of Israel for which the captivity was to come, Zephaniah 3:1-36.3.7. The judgment of the nations followed by kingdom blessing under Messiah, Zephaniah 3:8-36.3.20.
