Malachi 1:1-4:6. Malachi lived – 435BC-412BC.

Malachi’s main concern was that the people of Israel had once again forgotten God and were failing to do what God required.

Malachi, along with Haggai and Zechariah, were three prophets who prophesied after the Jews returned from captivity in Babylon. That is they were called “post-exile prophets.

Malachi in Hebrew means: Messenger of Jah.
