Bible Question:

Where can I find a list of all the known prophets/prophecies?

Bible Answer:

There are too many prophecies in the scriptures to list them all. Therefore, I would encourge you to consider buying two books. The first one is “All the Messianic Prophecies of the Bible” which was written by Herbert Lockyer and published by Zondervan Corp (SBN: 0310280915). The second book is written by Josh McDowell, published by Thomas Nelson, and titled, “Evidence That Demands a Verdict, Volume 1” (ISBN: 0840743785).

Prophets

The table is a list of all the prophets and prophetesses in the Bible, other than the major and minor prophets.

Except for Moses, these men and women who spoke for God did not write any scripture. Scriptures does not tell us that Aaron made any future predictions for God. A prophet was one who spoke for God and did not necessarily make future predictions or write scritpure.

Major and Minor Prophets

But the major and minor prophets did write scripture and they came after Israel was split into two kingdoms: the Kingdom of Israel and the Kingdom of Judah. Each one had a ministry to one of the kingdoms. Therefore, the chart below shows the kingdoms to which they ministered.

Conclusion:

It is amazing to see that Abraham was a prophet. Abraham was the first man in scripture who was called a prophet, and he was called God’s friend (James 2:23). But a man or woman does not need to be a prophet to have a close relationship with God. A close relationship can be found by wanting and seeking it.
