Haggai Chapter Index


The Bible Knowledge Commentary (Vol I, Old Testament) is an excellent resource and is referred to as the BKC.

I. First Message: A Judgmental Call to Rebuild the Temple (1)

1:9b Recall the introduction in BKC, where Mr. Lindsey stated that approximately 16 years have passed with no work done on the temple. The LORD was not quick to anger, the people were well settled in yet continued to neglect the LORD's house.

II. Second Message: A Prophetic Promise of the Future Glory of the Temple (2:1-9)

III. Third Message: A Priestly Decision to Illustrate the Present Blessings of Obedience (2:10-19)

IV. Fourth Message: A Messianic Prophecy Concerning Zerubbabel (2:20-23)
