The words of Zephaniah contain one of my favorite Bible verses. Yet before we get to that verse, the book, like many prophetic books, is full of alarming brokenness and impending judgement. The book isn’t exactly like curling up with a comforting Psalm or an inspirational Parable of Jesus. But still the themes of comfort, hope, and faith are present if we expectantly and faithfully linger in its pages.
So what do we know about this man the Lord chose to bring His words to His people?
