The Lives of the Prophets


The Lives of the Prophets is an ancient apocryphal account of the lives of the prophets of the Old Testament. The Lives of the Prophets includes the lives of the 23 prophets: Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Danie, Hosea, Mica, Amo, Joel, Obadiah, Jonah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Zechariah, Zerubbabel, Malach, Nathan, Ahijah the Shilonite, Joad or Ioad, Azariah, Elijah the Tishbite, Elisha, Zechariah ben Jehoiada. The author of the Lives of the Prophets seems to have been more interested in miracles, intercessions and predictions of the prophets than in their ethical teachings. The theme of prophets as intercessors for people long after the prophet's death is also present. A major theme is martyrdom of the prophets: six prophets are said to have been martyred. The book also explores their respective burial places and may have been used as a pilgrims’ Guidebook.
