Jewish History: Biblical History: The End of Prophecy:
When did prophecy end?
Prophecy ended at the beginning of the Second Temple period; the last
prophets were Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi. When there no longer
were prophets who could consult G-d, the Rabbis made religious
decisions on the basis of tradition or interpretation of the Scriptures.
The prophet Elijah is expected to return to
announce the arrival of the messiah.
