History

1. True or false?  Zephaniah focuses on Jerusalem and refers to it as though he were a resident.

2. According to Haggai, Judah was experiencing drought and a lack of prosperity because they had forsaken God's command to rebuild the temple.

3.Multiple choice: What happened to Zechariah on the night of February 15, 519 B.C. (Zech.. 1:7)?
(a) He got married; (b) he had a series of eight visions; or (c) he first prophesied of Messiah.




1. True (Zeph. 1:4, 9, 10; 3:1-7). The most vivid local color is the reference  to "sound of a mournful cry from the Fish Gate, a wailing from the Second Quarter" (1:10 ).
 
 
2. True (Hag. 1:6-11 ).
 
 
3. (b) He had a series of eight visions (Zech. 1:7-6:8 ). The date can be determined  because of Zechariah's precision and because the dates of Darius I of Persia are known from extra biblical sources.

I love Ezra and Nehemiah! These are two of my favorite books of the Bible.
