Overview

In oracles and visions, Zechariah challenged his hearers to return to the coming kingdom, to cleanse themselves in anticipation of the cleansing fountain of God’s grace, and to restore the city of Jerusalem in preparation for its coming glorification. The promises of God in the book of Zechariah are meant to fuel the faithfulness of God’s people and to prepare the way for the promised Messiah.

Barry G. Webb explores the kingdom of God as the prophet Zechariah apprehended it. The study of the book of Zechariah is bound to be enriching, for it is imbued from beginning to end with the same heart-cry that Jesus turned into a prayer for all of us: “Your kingdom come.”

Top Highlights

“So at the heart of this vision is a strong endorsement of Zerubbabel as the divinely chosen temple builder” (Page 92)

“It shows that suffering at the hands of bad shepherds has its root cause in a failure to value and respond properly to the loving care and discipline of the true shepherd, God himself.” (Page 153)

“Here, however, the issue is unrepentance—the continued presence in the community of people who persist in conduct offensive to God. His response to this problem, as we are about to see, is eradication (Vision 6) and removal (Vision 7).” (Page 97)

“But (and here is the point) that security and prosperity will not be achieved by man-made walls, or indeed by any human activity at all, but by the promised presence of God.” (Page 81)

“The Spirit of God, however, is God. It is vital that we always distinguish clearly between God himself and the instruments he uses.” (Page 94)
