In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He [Jesus Christ -Yeshua] was in the beginning with God.


Following the five books of the Major Prophets are the twelve books of the Minor Prophets. The word minor is in reference to the length of the books rather than importance when compared to the five books of the Major Prophets. The twelve prophets spanned a period from c. 845-425 BC.

The themes of the Minor Prophets are the same as with the Major Prophets: condemnation, warning, judgment and redemption. All prophecies regarding the first coming of Jesus Christ, the Messiah, have been fulfilled. Prophecies associated with the second coming of Christ are being fulfilled in our time.
