Minor Prophets
The Minor Prophets or Twelve Prophets (Aramaic: תרי עשר‎, Trei Asar, "The Twelve"), occasionally Book of the Twelve, is the last book of the Nevi'im, the second main division of the Jewish Tanakh. The collection is broken up to form twelve individual books in the Christian Old Testament, one for each of the prophets. These prophets wrote during the waning of the Jewish kingdoms through to the return from Babylonian exile. The oldest surviving copies were written in Hebrew. — Excerpted from Twelve Minor Prophets on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
