We have heard a message from the LORD: An envoy was sent to the nations.
Obadiah is the story of a man called to confront two families, the offspring of twin brothers, Jacob and Eli Jordan. When Jacob steals his older brother’s inheritance and blessing, Eli, harboring deep-seated resentment, disowns his family and marries into the neighboring Eaton clan, bringing with him the seeds of bitterness and revenge. Decades later, the feud comes to a head when the Jordans, caught in the undertow of the Great Depression, face financial and familial ruin. The Eatons, ever vigilant from their mountain home, move to avenge their ancestors, but in so-doing find themselves aligned against the solitary, aged prophet, Obadiah.
