The Minor Jewish Prophets, also known as The Twelve, The Twelve Prophets, or The Minor Prophets, were the prophetic and visionary authors Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi. In some versions of scripture, each of their books is treated as a separate title (e.g., the Book of Hosea), but in other versions, they are compiled into one book, which is the eight books in the second division of the Hebrew Bible, known as "Neviʾim" or "The Prophets." Their predominant themes were religious purity and reform, justice, and warnings of disaster, plagues, and divine abandonment if these conditions were not met.
