Biography, Facts and
Information about Malachi
The following info
provides a concise biography with facts and information about Malachi:
the last of the minor prophets, and the writer of the last book of
the Old Testament canon (Malachi 4:4,5,6). Nothing is known of him
beyond what is contained in his book of prophecies. Some have
supposed that the name is simply a title descriptive of his
character as a messenger of Jehovah, and not a proper name. There is
reason, however, to conclude that Malachi was the ordinary name of
He was contemporary with Nehemiah. (No allusion is made to him by
Ezra, and he does not mention the restoration of the temple, and
hence it is inferred that he prophesied after Haggai and Zechariah,
and when the temple services were still in existence (Malachi 1:10;
3:1,10). It is probable that he delivered his prophecies about B.C.
420, after the second return of Nehemiah from Persia (Nehemiah
13:6), or possibly before his return.
