03.03.05 443 B.C. +/- Malachi
Malachi is generally considered to have been the last prophet who wrote in the Old Testament era. He criticized Judah for her many sins and foresaw that a day of judgment would come. He said that a forerunner would announce the coming of the messiah who would usher in a new covenant for the Jewish people and the entire world. That forerunner would be John the Baptist and the Messiah would be Jesus, the Christ (meaning the “Anointed One”).
