The Minor Prophets


The Minor Prophets — or The Twelve as they are called in the Vulgate, the Hebrew Bible and the Septuagint — were so called because of their brevity rather than because their ministries were less important.

The books of the twelve prophets span about four and a half centuries - dating from the ninth century before Christ to the fifth century before Christ - and cover three significant periods of Israel's history.

  • The Assyrian Period (Hosea to Nahum)
  • The Babylonian Period (Habakkuk and Zephaniah)
  • The Persian Period (Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi)

    These are the Minor Prophets.
