Here we go.  Part 2 of 3

Isaiah

Quotable prophet:
"They'll beat swords into plowshares"
"Who shall I send?  Here am I"
"He'll be called Immanuel"
"He's pierced for our transgressions"
"..they'll soar on wings like Eagles"
"for my thoughts are not your thoughts..."
"sins like scarlet / white as snow"
"the wolf will live with the lamb"
"See, I'm doing a new thing"
Call it: 5th Gospel
Jeremiah

Buckle up, suckas
Jeremiah brings the fire
Drops mic, picks up yoke
Lamentations

Jerusalem Gone
Fists to the sky, "Why God, Why" 
Oh, it's my fault now ? !
Ezekiel

Gold Star for Weirdness
Reads like toddler's fever dream
Eyes, Wheels, Wings, Vengeance
Daniel

God gives Daniel plans
For a Holy fad diet
plus, some other stuff

Lions can't kill him
Fire won't consume his friends
plus more weird visions
Hosea

Gracious and patient
The prophet marries a whore
He never gives up
Joel

There's a storm coming
History crawls toward it's end
it all goes bonkers
Amos

The shepherd prophet
Rails against rich oppressors
check your privilege, folks
Obadiah

The minor prophets
Specialize in bleak judgments
Edom's going down!
Jonah

Jonah runs from God
"Nineveh? heh. NO-nevah"
Repentance, fish puke.
Micah

God's rule is coming
You: Act justly, love mercy,
Walk with God humbly
Nahum

Nineveh will fall
Jonah would have loved this guy
(he hated that place)
Habakkuk

Evil thrives. Why, God?
God: "It's about to get worse"
The Just Live by Faith!
Zephaniah

Minor Prophets love
to say Babylon's coming
Did these guys share notes?
Haggai

Hey guys, remember
That great temple we had once?
We should build it back!
Zechariah

mini Isaiah
Maybe call it Gospel 6
Temple, Messiah 

Malachi

Back from Babylon
For years...Temple is back too!
Friends, live faithfully!
