When the exiles return to Jerusalem from the Babylonian captivity in 538 B.C., they begin to rebuild the temple that was destroyed by the Babylonians in 586 B.C. But very quickly, resistance arises from the local population - not from military or mob attacks, but from an army of lawyers! The work that starts in 538 is quickly put on hold until legal issues are sorted out. Finally, in 520 B.C. - 18 years later - the Jews of Jerusalem are given the go-ahead to resume building. But by then, the people have lost interest. Through the prophet Haggai, God gives the Jews of Jerusalem a swift kick in the butt to get them moving!
