i have to write a biography about ovadia. does anyone know if there are any books about him?
or a story in tanach which he is known for?
Is he in the tanach? Or is he the gadol hador? If the latter, you can probably at least find him mentioned with anything shas related.
I would suggest opening a mikraos gedolos and digging in….
hidding the other neviim (not sure it was him)
The Little Midrash Says.
Did you try google?
Try the gemaras in Yuma 38b, Sanhedrin 39b, and Nedarim 62a. Good luck.
For the record, I commend Vogue on her incredible pun. Also, take a look in the Ishei HaTanach and the Mekoros it quotes.
Intro to Trei Assar (Tanach im pirush Malbim)
