It will be seen that if we follow the Hebrew canon, we shall include
Joshua, Judges, Samuel and Kings, but exclude Daniel.  The Hebrew conception
of a Prophet was wider than simple predictions, but it is the predictive
aspect of prophecy that interests us at the moment.  We shall, therefore,
omit the historical books mentioned above, but include Daniel.  This will
give us the following prophecies, which come under the heading 'Predictive':
Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, the Twelve Minor Prophets and Daniel.  (To this
collection must be added a number of the Psalms which are predictive in
character).  This necessarily makes a formidable list of works that call for
examination, and the words, 'The burden of prophecy' recur to the mind as one
contemplates the task.
Another question that must be settled is, in what order should these
prophecies be considered?  If the chronological order in which these prophets
appeared could be established, it would be wise to adopt that order.  This,
however, can only be done if that order can be ascertained.  The four
prophets Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and Daniel are dated.  Let us see this
before we go further.
'The vision of Isaiah the son of Amoz, which he saw
concerning Judah and Jerusalem in the days of Uzziah,
Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah, kings of Judah' (Isa. 1:1).

word of the Lord came in the days of Josiah the son of Amon
king of Judah, in the thirteenth year of his reign' (Jer.
'In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of
king Jehoiachin's captivity, the word of the Lord came
expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi' (Ezek.
