Major Prophets

About the Major Prophets

The Major Prophets consists of the books of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Lamentations, Ezekiel and Daniel. These books were written after the reign of Solomon had concluded and the nation of Israel has split into to kingdoms – the southern kingdom of Judah and the northern kingdom of Israel. Both kingdoms eventually abandoned God and after falling into idolatry and gross immorality, were defeated and taken into captivity by neighboring nations.

The book of Isaiah dates to Isaiah’s period of ministry from about 740 B.C. to 680 B.C. The book of Jeremiah was written by the prophet Jeremiah during his ministry from 627 to 580 B.C. The book of Ezekiel, written by the prophet and priest of that same name. He lived from 622 B.C. to about 560 B.C. He prophesied from about 592 B.C. to at least 570 B.C., during which time he would have authored this book. Daniel wrote his book of Daniel by 530 B.C. while in Babylonian captivity. Although he was one of the Jewish captives of King Nebuchadnezzar, through miraculous circumstances, Daniel was made “ruler of the whole Province of Babylon and chief administrator over all the wise men of Babylon” (Daniel 3:48).  His prophecies encompass not only ancient Israel, but God’s plan for both Gentiles and Jews into the end times of human history.
