The Chronology of the Old Testament Prophets The sixteen prophets—Isaiah to Malachi—whose writings have come down to us lived during four centuries, from about to B. Most of them left chronological data by which the duration of their ministry can be determined, at least approximately. For two of them Joel and Obadiah , however, no conclusive evidence as to the time of their work exists, and scholars differ widely in their views concerning this matter. The accompanying chart enables the reader to study these prophets in their historical setting.

• Obadiah contains the OT’s most detailed prophecy about the relationship between the descendants of Esau and those of Jacob, a topic that appears repeatedly throughout the OT (see Background).
Great disagreement exists about the time of the writing of the book of Obadiah, with at least four distinct possibilities surfacing: Of the above four possibilities for the dating of Obadiah, numbers 2 and 4 seem most plausible. The author of Obadiah: Thirteen Obadiahs are mentioned in the Old Testament. If the author of this book is any one of those, the four best possibilities are 1 the officer in Ahab’s palace who hid God’s prophets in a cave I Kings Obadiah, like only the book of Nahum, offers no hope for the Edomites whose destruction was foretold, and offered no repentance from God.
Content[ edit ] The book of Obadiah is based on a prophetic vision concerning the fall of Edom , [v. The eastern half is possessed by the Hashemite kingdom of Jordan. In the days of Obadiah, the Edomites lived along the cliffs and mountaintops of the arid land south of the Dead Sea, all the way to the Gulf of Aqaba on the Red Sea. There was very little in the way of arable land, so the Edomites made their living supporting and controlling the main caravan route between Egypt and Babylon that passed through their whole land.
Throughout most of the history of Judah, Edom was controlled absolutely from Jerusalem as a vassal state. Among the region’s great powers, Edom was held in low regard.
Obadiah – Bagaman ikaw ay pailanglang sa itaas na parang aguila, at bagaman ang iyong pugad ay malagay sa gitna ng mga bituin, aking ibababa ka mula roon, sabi ng Panginoon. (translation: Tagalog: Ang Dating Biblia ()).
Obadiah verse 1 identifies the author of the Book of Obadiah as the Prophet Obadiah. The Book of Obadiah was likely written between and B. Obadiah, the shortest book in the Old Testament, is only 21 verses long. Obadiah is a prophet of God who uses this opportunity to condemn Edom for sins against both God and Israel.
The Edomites are descendants of Esau and the Israelites are descendants of his twin brother, Jacob. A quarrel between the brothers has affected their descendants for over 1, years. This division caused the Edomites to forbid Israel to cross their land during the Israelites’ Exodus from Egypt. Edom’s sins of pride now require a strong word of judgment from the Lord. Obadiah verse 4,"Though you soar like the eagle and make your nest among the stars, from there I will bring you down,” declares the LORD.
As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head. Obadiah’s message is final and it is sure: Edom has been arrogant, gloating over Israel’s misfortunes, and when enemy armies attack Israel and the Israelites ask for help, the Edomites refuse and choose to fight against them, not for them.
Congratulations to Obadiah and Nicole from Oregon and Washington!

REFLECTIONS by Al Maxey. Issue # March 29, ***** An impulse as irresistible as in the acorn to germinate is in the soul of the prophet to speak. This dating of the prophecy of Obadiah seems the most reasonable to me, although Edom certainly had .
God rejoices over saving sinners, not over punishing them. Title — Author The Hebrew title means"servant of the Lord. There are no historical records of Obadiah apart from this single book. The book itself does not tell us anything about the prophet. There is a great deal of differences in opinion on the dating of this letter.
The possible dates range from around B. If written in connection to the Philistine invasion, Obadiah is the earliest of the writing prophets. The message is then extended to all of the nations who have been hostile to God. At the same time, the prophet sends a message of hope to Judah. History tells us that Edom fell to the Babylonians about five years after the final fall of Jerusalem. The people do not disappear, for the Herods are Idumeans, the descendants of the Edomites. But, as a nation, Edom is judged and disappears.

Untitled[ edit ] Hello all. I have just updated the Obadiah page from what previously was. I have conserved much of the original information presented and have also added extensively to it.
This view assumes that Obadiah wrote before Jeremiah, but the dating of Obadiah is debatable.] Verse 8. The people would have to flee because the Lord was going to bring disaster on them. The oasis of Dedan lay in Edom”s southeast region close to the Arabian Desert. Verse
When God first gave the Bible to his people, he used their languages. They could understand what they read. God wants us to understand the Bible today too. So we have worked hard to make the New International Reader’s Version easy to read and understand. The NIV is easy to understand and very clear. We made the NIrV even easier to read and understand.
We used the words of the NIV when we could. Sometimes we used shorter words. We explained words that might be hard to understand. We made the sentences shorter.

This prophecy has the distinction of being the shortest book in the OT. There are twelve different individuals in the OT with this name a very common name , but no indication that any of these other individuals are to be identified with this particular prophet. Nothing is known about his life, background or personality except what little can be inferred from this prophecy.
It is assumed that he was a native of Judah. Others feel he may also have been among the circle of prophets attached to the Jerusalem Temple.
obadiah The short book of Obadiah, consisting of only 21 verses, is not dated and its chronological setting is uncertain. Obadiah’s prophecy, directed against Edom, presupposes that a looting of Jerusalem and a carrying away of many Jews into captivity had recently taken place.
It is directed against the Edomites. The Edomites were descendants of Esau. Until the 5th cent. Their fortified cities included Sela Petra , Teman and Bozrah. Sela, located on an important caravan route, was almost impregnable. Its buildings were carved out of solid pink rock with cliffs of purple in the background cf. Robinson, The Sarcophagus of an Ancient Civilization. The Nabateans dislodged the Edomites from Petra before b. The Edomites then settled in the Negev, and were driven out by Judas Macabaeus in b.
Was it that there were no descendants of the Gadites to maintain control of it? No, they had not gained it by default but by stealing it from the Israelites. C, and the Ammonites had moved into their territory then.

We must then make our best guess based off of the prophesy of Edom being destroyed and the event of Judah being pillaged. Anything beyond these two dates is a guess. There are some people who hold to it being a certain date but it is a guess. This leaves about years to put the book into. Due to the nature of the prophesies in Obadiah, they must be connected so to speak to an event when Judah was pillaged leaving the year period with two major options for dating the book Either in making Obadiah a contemporary of Elijah This is the option that would make it the same Obadiah.
Or in Making Obadiah a contemporary of Jeremiah This option would make it different Obadiahs The scholars tend to say it was the later of the two options, making it different Obadiahs.
