Even if Malachi were the last of the biblical prophets, there is no statement at the end of his book or anywhere else in the Bible stating categorically that prophecy had ceased. For example, Nehemiah battled false prophets (Neh. –7, 11–13) but did not negate the existence of prophecy in principle. He is a revelator and a prophet (Mosiah –16). In the Book of Mormon, Ammon taught that only a seer could use special interpreters, or a Urim and Thummim (Mosiah ; ). A seer knows the past, present, and future. Anciently, a prophet was often called a seer (1 Sam. ; 2 Sam. ).

The books Joshua, Judges, 1, 2 Samuel, and 1, 2 Kings are called "Former Prophets" because many prophets such as Nathan, Gad, Elijah, and Elisha ministered during that era. However, all of the Latter Prophets left us books and are therefore also called the Writing Prophets. It is the Writing Prophets that are studied here. These Study Guides. The book consists of six distinct sections, each in the form of a question-and-answer discussion. With the aid of this unusual discussion technique, the prophet defends the justice of God to a community that had begun to doubt that justice because its eschatological (end of the world) expectations were still unfulfilled. The author calls for fidelity to Yahweh’s Covenant.
