Untitled[edit]

This page has technical problems.

Page title[edit]

Is Malachi a widely accepted title for the subject of this page? Because, according to the transliteration rules, it should be Malakhi (unless Malachi is 'official'). Please clarify this. -- Ynhockey (Talk) 09:50, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

Why does an article headed Malachi have nothing about Malachi in it? It seems to be about Nahum. Grahambrack 15:05, 15 March 2007 (UTC)

Check Easton[edit]

We say:

According to the editors of the 1897 Easton's Bible Dictionary, the name is not a "nomen proprium" and is assumed to be an abbreviation of ("messenger of Yhwh"),

But Easton's says:

Some have supposed that the name is simply a title descriptive of his character as a messenger of Jehovah, and not a proper name. There is reason, however, to conclude that Malachi was the ordinary name of the prophet.

So we are saying that Easton's is saying the contrary of what it says. Are we quoting a different edition? Is the quote misattributed? --84.20.17.84 08:47, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

Perhaps the attribution should have been to the 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia article Book of Malachi, which resolutely does take this view.
However, the best way forward would be to report what is said by contemporary mainstream 21st century academic scholarship. Jheald (talk) 16:48, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
