Haggai

09.10.2010

Haggai the prophet had a very specific mission: encourage Zerubbabel and friends as they rebuild God’s temple.  He’s like the holy pep squad for Jerusalem U, Class of ’32.*  Of note is that unlike most of the other prophets, Haggai does not really preach judgment.  He frankly assesses the current situation, recognizing the judgment that has already befallen the people, but he’s not warning them of punishment to come.
