The Book of Haggai has the combination of prophetic oracle and narrative history. The book was written by the prophet Haggai about 520 BC and is one of the shortest books in the Old Testament, having only two chapters. It is also the most precisely dated among the other books in the Old Testament.
In the book, God instructs Haggai to exhort His people to finish the construction of the temple in Jerusalem, which has been interrupted by several factors (including a recent drought).
