The Book of Haggai is a collection of brief messages that came from the Lord through the prophet Haggai in 520 bc. The people had returned from exile and had lived in Jerusalem for some years, but the Temple still lay in ruins. The messages urge the leaders of the people to rebuild the Temple, and the Lord promises prosperity and peace in the future for a renewed and purified people.
