Who can guess what this acronym means? Anyone?
Answer: It is a handy way to remember the name and order of the minor prophets in the Old Testament. HOsea, JOel, AMos, OBadiah, JOnah, MIcah, NAhum, HAbakkuk, ZEphaniah, HAggai, ZEchariah, MAlachi. If you sound out the big ‘word’, and break it into section it can be easily memorized: “hojo-amobjo-mina-haze-hazema.”
