Abstract The book of Joel is of major importance for understanding the formation of the Book of the Twelve. After a quick survey of previous research and some methodological considerations, the article will show that the book of Joel was integrated into the Book of the Twelve already on a very early level. Together with the books of Amos, Micah, and Zephaniah this book once formed a small collection of four prophetic books. This collection can be dated in the Persian period and can be read as a literary reaction to the disastrous political and economic situation of that time. The article ends with a brief look at the further redactional development of the Book of the Twelve.
