May 24: Joel Prophet to Judah
Unit 14, Session 4: Joel, Prophet to Judah
God called Joel to prophesy to the Southern Kingdom of Judah in the middle of an invasion of locusts and a drought. Joel said God was judging the people for their sin. Joel told them to repent. God would rather forgive His people than punish them. God used locusts and drought to get Judah’s attention. They had turned from God, and the prophet Joel called them to repent. Like Joel, Jesus calls sinners to repent. Jesus died and was resurrected so repentant p
eople could experience forgiveness. (Luke 24:46-47)
