An Old Testament prophet who prophesied in approximately 520 B.C. in Jerusalem, soon after the Jewish people returned from their exile in Babylonia (Ezra 5:1; 6:14). He spoke of rebuilding the Lord’s temple in Jerusalem and reproved the people because it had not been finished. He also wrote of the millennial temple and reign of the Savior.

The book of Haggai

In chapter 1, the Lord rebuked the people for living in their finished houses while the temple remained unbuilt. Chapter 2 records Haggai’s prophecy that the Lord will give peace in His temple.
