THE BOOK OF

MALACHI

 

Overview:

This book is named after the prophet who composed it. This book may be studied as a series of legal complaints by the God of Israel, who acts as a prosecuting attorney as he pursues justice in court:

(1) First Complaint: His People's Despised Love (1:-1:5),
(2) God's Second Complaint: Despised Offerings by His Priests (1:6-14),
(3) Third Complaint: His Priests Fail to Honor Him (2:1-12),
(4) Fourth Complaint: Marital Abuses by His Priests (2:13-16),
(5) Fifth Complaint: People who Complain (2:17),
(6) The Coming of the Messenger (3:1-6),
(7) Sixth Complaint: Gifts and Offerings (3:7-12),
(8) Seventh Complaint: Slandering God (3:13-15),
(9) The Restoration of the Righteous (3:16-18),
(10) The Coming Day of the Lord (4:1-6).

Authorship:

This book is named after its author (1:1) about whom nothing is known.

Composition Date:

Rabbinic and Christian traditions hold that Malachi's book was the last book of the Hebrew Scriptures to have been written before the beginning of the 400 year silent period that came to a close with the ministry of John the Baptist.

Messianic Hope:

The Messiah as the Sun of Righteousness
