Description

"Long ago God spoke to our ancestors in many and various ways by the prophets" (Hebrews 1:1). Haggai and Zechariah ministered during the time when a remnant of Israel had returned from exile in Babylon and when the Temple of the Lord needed to be rebuilt. Haggai challenged his contemporaries to tune their ears to the conversation that God was having with them through the circumstances of their lives, and to recommit themselves to put God first by rebuilding his Temple. Zechariah's intriguing visions and ringing pronouncements burst the bounds of his own time to lay a conceptual and theological foundation for the Coming One who would forever surpass the Temple. This course will explore the original meanings and on-going significance of these books for Christians today. Lectures include:

  • Introduction: Prophecy and the Minor Prophets
  • Introduction: Historical Background
  • Haggai: Part 1
  • Haggai: Part 2
  • Zechariah 1-2
  • Zechariah 2-3
  • Zechariah 4-5
  • Zechariah 6-8
  • Zechariah 7-8
  • Zechariah 12-14
