    The Doctrine of the Church
    with Pastor Rob Reece

    Spanish Bible Study — The Names of God  
    with Bill Ogden
    The Old Testament contains twelve books that are called “Minor Prophets.” Why are they called “minor,” and what can we learn from a study of these books? In our study of this section of the Bible, we will examine the life, timeline, ministry, and significance of the prophet and his work in order to understand the primary message of each book, concluding with practical applications to our lives.

    El Antiguo Testamento contiene doce libros que se llaman "Profetas Menores". ¿Por qué se les llama "menores" y qué podemos aprender del estudio de estos libros? En nuestro estudio de esta sección de la Biblia aprenderemos sobre el mensaje de cada libro al estudiar la vida, la línea de tiempo, el ministerio y el significado del profeta y su obra, el mensaje principal de cada libro, y concluiremos con algunas formas de aplicar El mensaje de cada profeta a nuestras vidas.
