Time – 520 B.C.
Haggai speaks to the few Jews who have returned to Judah from the captivity in Babylon. He exhorts them to “consider their ways” and to complete the Temple as its foundation had been laid eighteen years before. The people responded, and the Temple was completed in 516 B.C. Haggai further pronounces that pagan empires will be overthrown by God, and Judah will be elevated during the time of the Messiah.
