David Helm on Teaching Habakkuk

Help Me Teach The Bible

Published on 02/20/2020

Habakkuk had some significant questions for God. And God’s answers were hard to hear. But God told Habakkuk to write down what God was showing him because future generations would need to hear it. We need to hear it. Those we teach need to hear it.In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, David Helm, lead pastor of the Hyde Park congregation of Holy Trinity Church in Chicago and chairman of the board of the Charles Simeon Trust, walks listeners through the short three-chapter book of Habakkuk, helping us to trace its argument, feel its poetic pathos, and sing its song. We spend time on how to handle Habakkuk’s important statement “the righteous will live by faith.” We also talk about Habakkuk's faith-filled determination to trust God in the disaster that is about to come down on his people as God determines to use the Babylonians to deliver his judgment.Recommended Print Resources:Habakkuk: A Wrestler with God by Walter J. ChantryNahum, Habakkuk, and Zephaniah:The New International Commentary of the Old Testament by O.
