Haggai - My Feast

Haggai was one of the post-exilic prophets of Judah. He was probably born in Babylon during the Captivity of the Jews, and returned to Jerusalem with Zerubbabel as a young man. He is famed especially for his work in encouraging renewal of the rebuilding of the Temple under the favourable edict of Darius, after the work had been suspended for twenty years as a result of interference by neighbouring rulers. In the Royal Arch system in America Haggai represents the scribe or second officer. — ( Ezra 5:1 - Haggai 1:1 - Zecheriah 1:1 )
