Quick Intro to Zechariah

Zechariah prophesied along side Haggai to the Jews who returned to rebuild the temple at Jerusalem. Whereas Haggai’s prophecies are very practical touching housing, food, and drink, Zechariah’s prophecies take the reader to heavenly, eternal realms. The nine visions that begin this book include subjects like Christ seeking to restore His testimony, the cleansing of sins for working on God’s house, a lampstand burning oil to shine to all the earth, the Branch as a servant of God removing iniquity in one day, God arranging the whole earth for his glory. Zechariah prophesies how Joshua the priest will wear a crown, which kingly priest is only fulfilled in Christ. And he unveils the entrance of Christ to Jerusalem on a donkey. Finally he prophesies about the battle of Armageddon and the second coming of Christ.
