Introduction to the book of Haggai



Haggai’s name means “festal one.” Although little is known about the prophet, his authorship of this prophecy is not a matter of dispute. Ezra records the beginning of his ministry to Judah and Jerusalem (Ezra 5:1), and the success of his preaching (Ezra 6:14). Very likely, Haggai was among those who could remember something of the glory of the former temple (Hag. 2:3); thus, he would have been at least in his mid-seventies when God commissioned him for this particular ministry.
