What is the difference between a minor and a major prophet. For many years, I guess I thought one was more significant then the other.
The difference between major and minor prophets is the difference in length of their books. The major prophets are much longer and fewer in number. Minor prophets are shorter in length and greater in number.
“Weeping prophet”, was one of the major prophets of the Hebrew.
He was a young man. Jeremiah the prophet lived in the final days of the crumbling nation of Israel. He was also called the “weeping prophet.”
One of my favorite verses Jeremiah 29:11
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
