Sooner or later a prophet's sayings, which may have been repeated to several different audiences with appropriate modifications, were written down either by the prophet himself or, more commonly, by a disciple. Collections of such sayings would be made, arranged according to subject matter, theme, stylistic characteristics, or catchword, circulated among the prophet's adherents, and eventually incorporated into the larger prophetic collection.
