Iain M. Duguid & Matthew P. Harmon – Zephaniah, Haggai, Malachi

The commentary Zephaniah, Haggai, Malachi by Iain M. Duguid and Matthew P. Harmon takesĀ a Christ-centric exegesis to these three prophetic books in the first testament in the Bible. The prophets themselves spoke to their fellow Jews about God’s judgment and refuge, priorities in life, and His endless care and love.

After a short introduction on the era and whereabouts of the prophets, the authors of this commentary dig into the actual scriptural passages to find clues for references in the Gospels and apostolic letters. The next step for each of the prophetic books is the (possible) application in your personal live in the here and now.
