756. Books of Prophecy

Luke 4:17
Luke 4:17. There was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written.
For a description of books, and the mode of opening and closing (referred to in this verse and in verse twenty) see notes on Job 19:23-24 (#414) and on Isaiah 34:4 (#511).
Each of the prophetical books is supposed to have been in a separate volume, with the exception of the prophecies of the twelve minor prophets, which were perhaps bound together.
