There are 12 Minor Prophets in the Old Testament: Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah and Malachi. The five Major Prophets are Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel and Daniel. The "major" and "minor" designations have nothing to do with the importance of the prophecy. All the prophets, major and minor, are important. These designations have to do with the length of the prophecy or book. The Major Prophets are longer and the Minor Prophets are shorter in length.
