Bible book: Joel

Creative activities and ideas based on the Bible book Joel

The book of Joel is a short but powerful book in the Old Testament, and the second of the twelve minor prophets. It was likely written during the time of the divided kingdom, when Israel and Judah were separate nations. Joel's message focuses on the theme of restoration and the promise of God's mercy, even in the midst of great suffering.

The book begins with a vivid description of a locust plague and drought, which is presented as a judgment from God for the people's disobedience. However, Joel also emphasizes the opportunity for repentance and the promise of restoration if the people turn back to God. This message of hope is reinforced through the imagery of abundant harvests, outpourings of the Holy Spirit, and God's final judgment on the enemies of His people.
