"The prophets Haggai and Zechariah joined forces in520b.c. to encourage the rebuilding of the temple following the Babylonian exile. After the Persian king, Cyrus had allowed the Jews to return to Jerusalem in538 B.C., work on the foundation of the temple was completed by536 B.C. But opposition arose and no further progress was made until Haggai and Zechariah burst upon the scene."
