What is this book about?
God’s people have refused to endure sound teaching, accumulating for themselves teacher to suit their own passions (2 Timothy 4:3), and so judgment will come. That judgment will look like God Himself coming down to make things right.
 
How does it point to Jesus?
God did come down, in the incarnation of Jesus Christ. He came to destroy all our idols, rooting them out of our hearts, pardoning iniquity, passing over transgression, casting into the depths of the sea all of our sins. He came in great faithfulness to the promises He swore in the days of old.
