Floyd Episcopal Seminary of the Southwest Austin, TX Following the current consensus, this commentary treats Zechariah and Zechariah as virtually separate documents, so that there are in effect four prophetic books under consideration.5/5(1). B. Nothing is known of Malachi apart from this book. C. Some have understood Malachi to be a title for the work and not the name of the prophet; 2 these identify Malachi as anonymous (along with Zechariah ) because of the similar headings in Zechariah and ; but the similarities between the headings is not substantial 3.
HAGGAI, ZECHARIAH and MALACHI It is an unfortunate misconception that because these books are called The Minor Prophets, their relevance to our lives is also minor. This couldn't be further from the truth. The richness of life's lessons and our prophetic hope permeate every word. Don't be tricked into missing these overwhelmingly rich studies. Chapters 9‑14 (of Zechariah) lack most of these features. Instead, they contain a series of pronouncements against other nations and prophecies about the end of days. The Temple is not mentioned (probably because it was already completed); and where the First Zechariah extols the governor, the Second Zechariah heavily criticizes him. The books of Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi—composed as they were in the postexilic period of Israel’s history—were intended, among other purposes, to bring hope to a people whose national and even personal lives had been shattered by the Babylonian destruction of Jerusalem and the Temple and the subsequent deportation of much of the Jewish population.

Walking Thru The Bible HAGGAI, ZECHARIAH And MALACHI These last three prophets in the Old Testament are from the period following the Babylonian captivity which we often call the "Restoration Period" or post-exilic period. The common message of these prophets was: return to the right ways of the Lord. Haggai and Zechariah were particularly concerned with the rebuilding of the temple which had. Thus even in the prophets' names God has hidden the theme of the book of Zechariah, for His message was a reminder that God remembered His people and would bless them at the appointed time. The prophecy of Zechariah has been called "The Apocalypse of the Old Testament," for like the book of Revelation, it is an unveiling of the unseen things. "The last few chapters of the Old Testament are arguably the most difficult texts for the interpreter of the Old Testament. In this commentary, David Petersen takes on the task of examining this prophetic literature of the Second Temple period as he explicates Zechariah , Zechariah , and Malachi."--BOOK JACKET.
