The Purpose and Message of Haggai

The first wave of Jews to return from Babylonian exile had stopped building the temple to focus on their own homes. Haggai brings God’s rebuke, revealing how God inhibits the happiness of His erring people, then giving immense encouragement, assurance of preservation, and prophesying Christ’s coming and the Christian era.
