The Prophets

Old Testament books that recount the lives and messages of Israel’s prophets.

The books in this section deal with the lives and messages of prophets who lived at different times in Israel’s history. The books are not arranged in chronological order. First are three major prophets: Isaiah, Jeremiah (Lamentations is traditionally associated with him), and Ezekiel. After the three major prophets is the book of Daniel and the twelve minor prophets: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habukkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi. In Jewish Bibles most of these books are included among “the Latter Prophets,” since there were prophets who lived before these figures. The stories of these early prophets are found in the books of Samuel and Kings.
