This synthetic study has two primary tasks. The first is to elucidate the structure of the book of Zechariah. But in order to do this, a satisfactory method of analysis must be found. Thus the author begins by drawing up suitable literary criteria that will help to frame a reliable way of proceeding. The method is then tested on the book of Zechariah, and the results are compared with those of other biblical scholarship. Although this is a study in “rhetorical criticism” it approaches the text from the standpoint of the authors’ and redactors’ intentions. The result is a convincing and wide-ranging analysis of the various and complex structural patterns of Zechariah.
Utilizing the Logos edition of Structure and the Book of Zechariah gives you easier access to the content of Zechariah and allows for side-by-side study of your resources that relate to Zechariah. All Scripture passages are tagged and appear on mouse-over and link to your favorite Bible translation in your library.
