A Primer on the Not-So-Minor Minor Prophets
Nestled in the middle of our Bibles are twelve short books commonly referred to as the Minor Prophets. Perhaps it’s the designation “minor” that has led some Bible readers to neglect these sacred works. Or maybe it’s because several of the books are rarely preached from Sunday morning pulpits, a reality that has led many to conclude they must not be all that important.
But remember what the New Testament teaches us: “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16). That includes these twelve short books stuck at the back of the Old Testament.
This short guide is a primer on the Minor Prophets, providing you with a few key details to help you open each one up and take hold of its message.
