Most everyone knows their names, Hosea...Amos...Micha...Zechariah...prophets of Israel, seers, whose prophetic works comprise The Book of the Twelve, Trei Asar. Less familiar are their prophecies. Yes, everyone knows about Jonah- he was the one swallowed by the whale, the one who foresaw the impending destruction of Nineveh. But what of the others, Haggai and Malachi, what were their prophecies about? What was Joel's vision of the invading army of locusts meant to portend? And what of Obadiah's single chapter prophecy concerning Edom? What secrets does it hold for the future, when "the saviors will ascend Mount Zion to rule Mount Esau, and the Kingdom will be G-d's?". Reading the text will provide some but not all of the answers. Large segments of these prophecies remain enigmatic even to those familiar with their historical context and versed in the metaphoric imagery of those who revealed the word of G-d. For a more complete picture, the reader will want to turn to Me'Am Lo'ez. Drawing widely from the rich reservoir of traditional Jewish sources, this work graphically fills in the details: who, what, where, and when. We learn how the ten missing tribes of Israel came to be missing, and the fate of the Kingdom of Judah; we learn of the consequences of arousing G-d's wrath as well as His great mercy for His people, and indeed for all mankind; and we learn to understand the prophets' visions of exiles past and present, as well as prophecies of the Final Redemption and the Ingathering that still awaits.
