Malachi

Malachi

Malachi prophesied after the return from Babylon under Ezra and Nehemiah. At that time the initial fervor among the Jews over their return had died down. The priests were just going through the motions. This is the situation that Malachi speaks against.

  • Malachi 1-2
    Introduction and historical background. The prophet's rebuke of Israel and its priests.
  • Malachi 2-4
    The everlasting purposes of God and His faithfulness to His covenant with Israel. God's challenge to bring the tithes into His storehouse. The promise to send Elijah before the Day of the Lord.
