Item description for Haggai, Zechariah 1-8 (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries) by Carol L. Meyers & Eric M. Meyers...

Overview
Both the book of Haggai and Zechariah were written to bolster the flagging spirits of the Jews who returned to Jerusalem after the Exile. Dedicated to the rebuilding of the Temple and the reconstruction of tattered lives, these two texts stand as a messianic plea for the restoration of Israel. This commentary features a fresh translation, new introduction and commentary, black and white Maps, charts, and photographs, and indices of authors, subjects, Hebrew words, and Scriptural references.

Publishers Description
Haggai and Zechariah 1-8 - Volume 25B in the acclaimed Anchor Yale Bible part of the Scripture known as the Minor Prophets - were written during a critical period in Israel's history, the momentous return of the Jews from Babylonian exile. Following the conquest of Babylon by the Persian Empire, the Israelites sought to reestablish their ethnic and religious legacy in Judah. This was a time of profound turmoil and uncertainty, and Haggai and Zechariah provided a crucial measure of support and inspiration. They rallied Israel's energies and exhorted their fellow countrymen to heed the word of God. under their guidance the Jews restored the Temple at Jerusalem, which had been destroyed by the armies of Nebuchadnezzar. Together the two prophets guided Israel through an important transitional epoch and reconciled the influences of Persia's dominion with the sacred traditions of the Hebrew people. In this illuminating new translation and commentary, Carol and Eric Meyers consider the Book of Haggai and the first eight chapters of the Book of Zechariah in a linguistic, social, and historical context. They underscore the literary artistry, the political acumen, and the prophetic authority of these fascination volumes that proved so vital to the survival of Israel and the preservation of the Jewish faith.
