A minor prophet is a book in the Minor Prophets section of the Old Testament. Twelve individuals have had their names attributed to a section of the Hebrew Bible which has become known as the "Books of the Minor Prophets" or more often known as the "Minor Prophets". In Jewish sources, the collective Aramaic term Trei Asar ("twelve") is also used. In the Hebrew Bible the writings of the minor prophets are counted as a single book, in Christian Bibles as twelve individual books. The "Minor Prophets" are listed below in order of their appearance in Hebrew and Western Christian bibles:

The Septuagint of the eastern churches has the order: Hosea, Amos, Micah, Joel, Obadiah, Jonah, the rest as above. It also puts the Minor Prophets before instead of after the Major prophets.

The term "minor" refers to the books' lengths, not their importance. See Major prophets for the longer books of prophecies in the Bible and the Tanakh. This article was forked from Wikipedia on March 31, 2006.
