The last book of the Prophets contains the prophecies of twelve distinct prophets and is known as Trei Asar (תרי עשר), meaning ‘twelve’ in Aramaic. In English, it’s sometimes called the “Twelve Minor Prophets,” implying the shorter length of their messages.
The era of the Trei Asar ranges from the middle of the eighth century BCE to the beginning of the fourth century BCE.
Hoshea, Yoel, Amos, Ovadya, Yona, and Micha prophesied during the eighth century BCE when Assyria terrorized the entire Middle East including the kingdoms of Yisrael and Yehuda.
Nachum, Chavakuk, and Tzefanya lived in the seventh century BCE, when Assyria’s even more vicious successor, Babylonia, threatened and eventually exiled the tiny kingdom of Yehuda.
The final three prophets, Chagai, Zecharya, and Malachi lived during the period of the return to the Land of Israel after seventy years of Babylonian exile.
