Joel Assessment

Storyboard Text

  • It is unclear when the book of Joel was written, but at the time, the Israelites were idolising other, fake gods and making alliances with cunning evil nations that were bound to stab them in the back.
  • THE BOOK OF JOEL
  • A locust swarm is devastating Israel when Joel calls the people to repent to god and then repents himself. Joel warns the Israelites of a future ‘Day of the Lord’ when another Locust swarm comes over Israel. Joel portrays the locusts as Gods army who destroy everyone and everything in their path.
  • This is called ‘The day of the lord’ and according to Joel – “It is Horrible.” Even as Joel calls for the people to repent, he knows that saying sorry can be an act and the people might not actually mean it. So, he askes for a truthful repentance back to their God, not other fake gods that the people at the time were being led to believe were true based on the knowledge of other evil nations.
  • WE REPENT!
  • As Joel spoke out to the people, he reasoned with this: “Even though God is doing these horrible things to us (Israel), he still loves us deeply and is doing this for a reason that we do not and will never understand.” After the Israelites repented, God sent away the locusts and returned Israel to its former glory.
  • We are so sorry we doubted you God! Thank you for still believing in us!
  • Finally, god makes a temple in Jerusalem and his presence there is like a source of life, leading out into the rest of the world.
  • This book teaches us to truly mean our apologies, and that our parents/caretakers and God are just looking out for us even if it is in a cruel or harmful way. At the end of the day, they always love us just like God.
  • Yeah! I know i can be ungrateful at times. But i always love God and my parents.
