Abstract

Malachi 4:4-6 (Heb 3:22-24) occupies a special place in the canon of Scriptures. In Malachi 4:4-6 (Heb 3:22-24) not only the book of Malachi comes to a close but the whole of the Prophets (Nebi'im), and the second part of the Hebrew Bible. In the Christian Bible the book of Malachi is the last book in the Old Testament, which is concluded with this passage, before one turns to the New Testament. In this article it was argued the these three verses serve not only as the conclusion to the book of Malachi but also as a fitting close to the second part of the Hebrew Bible. It also serves as a link to both the Pentateuch as the first part, and the Psalms as the third part, of the Hebrew canon of Scriptures. In this sense Malachi 4:4-6 (Heb 3:22-24) can be viewed as a point of convergence in the Old Testament or Hebrew Bible.
