Joel was probably a resident in Judah, as his commission was to that people. He makes frequent mention of Judah and Jerusalem (Joe_1:14; Joe_2:1, Joe_2:15, Joe_2:32; Joe_3:1, Joe_3:12, Joe_3:17, Joe_3:20, Joe_3:21).
He probably flourished in the reign of Uzziah (about 800 B.C.), and was contemporary with Amos and Isaiah. The contents of this book are,
- A prophecy of a great public calamity then impending over the land, consisting of a want of water and an extraordinary plague of locusts (Joel 1:1 - 2:11).
- The prophet then calls on his countrymen to repent and to turn to God, assuring them of his readiness to forgive (Joe_2:12-17), and foretelling the restoration of the land to its accustomed fruitfulness (Joe_2:18-26).
- Then follows a Messianic prophecy, quoted by Peter (Act_2:39).
- Finally, the prophet foretells portents and judgments as destined to fall on the enemies of God (Joel 3, but in the Hebrew text Joel 4, Heb. Text).
