The Prophet Haggai, whose name means "festive," was born in Babylon at the time of the captivity Of the Jews. He began to prophesy
in Jerusalem after their return thereto, and to admonish the people
to rebuild the Temple, in the days of Zorobabel, the second year of
the reign of Darius Hystaspes, King of Persia, about the year 520 before
Christ. His prophecy, divided into two chapters, is ranked tenth among
the minor Prophets.
Apolytikion in the Second Tone:
As we celebrate the memory of Thy Prophet Aggaeus, O Lord, through
him we beseech Thee to save our souls.
Kontakion in the Second Tone:
Illumined in mind with streams of light from Heaven's heights, thou
brightly didst shine in prophecy throughout the world; and in manifesting
types of Christ's dispensation, which was to come, thou becamest
illustrious, O Prophet Aggaeus, wise in things divine.
