For Discussion
  1. The righteous often perish under God's judgment of the wicked. What does that say about God's judgment?

  2. From an Old Testament perspective, explain how (if at all) God's judgment is related to God's redemption.

  3. Explain how God's redemption through the Messiah and His kingdom is related to His Judgment (cf. Mal 3:1-4; Joh 9:39, 16:11, 33; Col 2:15).

  4. Define "The Day Of The LORD" (Joel 1:15, 2:1f, 31, 3:14; Gen 2:17; Mal 3:1-6; Mat 7:22).

    Is The Day "at hand" for Christians? for non-Christians?

    Is Joel's concept of the LORD's Day different or unique from that of other biblical writers?
