Title (Ob 1:1-1:1)

“The vision of Obadiah.”

Who is Obadiah?  We know very little about him, since this was a common name.  There is not even any mention of his father as was the usual custom.  He seems to be a 6th century BCE prophet around the time of the captivity of Jerusalem.  Part of this work seems similar to Jeremiah, chapter 49, against Edom.  Like many prophets he had a vision.
