MALACHI: Introduction and Simple Outline
NAME: Malachi means "my messenger." Some have inferred that this might be an anonymous writer rather than the personal name. Most conservatives are assured it was a personal name.
DATE: Around 435-415 BC.
CONTEMPORARIES: There are no contemporary writers. He was the last of the OT writers. Tradition says he was a member of The Great Synagogue.
THEME: Calls to repentance of the remnant which, although it returned to Palestine to reestablish proper worship and service of Jehovah, had already gone far astray and was well on the road to the apostasy which our Lord Jesus found among the Pharisees and Sadducees when He came to earth.
OUTLINE: See Appendix.
