Book of Haggai

(hag' - ay - ee)

General Information

Haggai is one of the books of the Minor Prophets in the Old Testament of the Bible. It was written in 520 - 519 BC, but nothing is known of the author. The book consists of four addresses aimed at promoting the rebuilding of the Temple after the Babylonian exile (586 - 537 BC) of the Jews. Even though the second Temple would lack the grandeur of Solomon's Temple, the prophet gave assurances that the glory of the second would be greater than the first. The text was addressed to Zerubbabel, the governor of Judah, and to Joshua, the high priest.
