    1. By the Jewish arrangement, which places together the twelve minor prophets in a single volume, the chronological order of the prophets as a whole is broken up. The three greater prophets, Isaiah, Jeremiah, and Ezekiel, stand in the true order of time. Daniel began to prophesy before Ezekiel, but continued, many years after him.

Size does matter when it comes to classifying the prophetic books of the Bible. The distinction between minor and major prophets goes back a long time. As the fifth-century Christian theologian Augustine says in The City of God , “The prophet Isaiah is not in the book of the twelve prophets called minor (prophetae minores) because their discourses are short.”.
