Scofield's Reference Notes
Joel

Chapter 1 Chapter 2 Chapter 3

Book Overview - Joel

by C.I. Scofield

Book Introduction - Joel

Joel, a prophet of Judah, probably exercised his ministry during the reign of Joash (2 Chronicles 22:-12.). In his youth he may have known Elijah, and he certainly was a contemporary of Elisha. The plagues of insects, which were the token of the divine chastening, give occasion for the unveiling of the coming "day of the Lord" (Isaiah 2:12, refs.), in its two aspects of judgment on the Gentiles and blessing for Israel.

Joel is in three chief parts:

1. The plague of insects, Joel 1:1-20.

2. The day of the Lord, Joel 2:1 to Joel 3:8.

3. Retrospect of the day of the Lord, and full kingdom blessing, Joel 3:9-21.
