Session 240: Haggai, Zechariah 1-4 “Make Your Faith Your #1 Priority”
Catholic Doctrine Bible Study
by Jim Hawk

Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi are Postexilic prophets....they speak AFTER the people have been allowed to return from their Babylonian Exile. Haggai: c.520BC - Though the people have returned, they have NOT rebuilt the Temple, partly due to outside influences, but also lack of proper priorities.  See Ezra 1-6 for background.  Does God have priority in your life? Zechariah: c.520BC (Same as Haggai above.) Chs1-4.... Return to God, there will be a New Jerusalem, we are the apple of God’s eye! We can have Hope! --- Support this podcast: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/catholi ..read more
