Read an Excerpt

When we hear the word "prophet," we usually think of some

one who foretells the future or prophesies about it. Although

that is one of the things a prophet may do, it is not the

only thing he (and occasionally she) does. A prophet teaches,

preaches, calls to repentance, corrects moral wrongs, elucidates

religious truths, and from time to time, prophesies. He denounces

sin and announces the punishment attributable to it. He is a

spokesperson for God, authorized to speak in His name and make

His will known to humankind.

The prophets of the Old Testament taught both by word and

deed; their actions at times a spiritual "show and tell" of what God

had in mind. "The ordinary Hebrew word for prophet is nabi,

derived from a verb signifying 'to bubble forth' like a fountain;

hence the word means one who announces or pours forth the declarations

of God."

Generally speaking, almost everyone classifies the prophets of

the Old Testament into major and minor prophets. The four major

prophets are Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel; the minor

prophets comprise Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah,

Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and

Malachi— sixteen in all, whose names grace a like number of Old

Testament books. The division is not founded on whether any

one of the sixteen prophets named is greater or more important

than another, but rather on the length of their books. However,

this is an artificial classification which may limit the number of

prophets to those who wrote books, thereby omitting many others.
