Major Prophets

Overview

In the language of the Bible, the words “prophet,” “prophecy,” etc. have quite a broad meaning—but all refer, primarily, to the idea of “speaking in the name of God.” The entire Old Testament could be said to be prophetical, but some books carry the names of specific prophets or teachers, twelve “minor” and four “major”—a distinction based on the length of the texts. The books of the major prophets—Isaiah, Jeremiah (with Lamentations and Baruch), Ezekiel, and Daniel—make up this volume of the Navarre Bible.
