Now, for the remainder of this week, July 29-31, 2020, we begin the Old Testament Book of Zechariah.
audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html Get ready for a 'treat of treats'!!!
[Please see the post on Monday, July 27, 2020 for notes to review Nahum, Habakkuk. Haggai, and Zephaniah].
Then, UPDATE: Because THE SMALLER SCROLLS of 'Ezra', 'Nehemiah' and 'Esther' are 'writings' which relates to this period of time, after Zechariah and Malachi, I shall post those three books here instead of as I originally planned to post them in the 'topical' room. So, please stay tuned!!
If you have the time, remember, I am posting a series since Tuesday/Thursday, July 21-23, 2020, 'From Where I Sit', a 'commentary' of the 'perilous times' in which we are living. [2 Timothy 3:1-5]
Now, without further, our 'introduction' of the 14-Chapter Book of - Zechariah.
Zechariah Date written – 500 BC
Author – Zechariah audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Summary – Zechariah, whose name means “whom Jehovah remembers,” is identified as the son of Berechiah, which means “Jehovah blesses,” and his father was the son of Iddo, which means “the appointed time.” Certainly this cluster of names with such rich meanings is suggestive of the encouragement given to the remnant that had returned to Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity—God remembers and blesses at the appointed time.
Zechariah happens just after Haggai, (see Ezra 5:1; 6:14), although he was probably a younger man (see Zechariah. 2:4). The people have started rebuilding the temple. Much of Zechariah is very difficult to understand so don’t feel too bad if this is a difficult book to read. Zechariah looks forward to the coming of the Messiah. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
For this reason, my friends, and so that you may have the maximum understanding as I have gleaned and with it such blessings, through the Holy Spirit, Our Mutual Teacher, I shall be using a reliable and free source of 'notes and outline' from a favorite of mine, Dr. J. Vernon McGee. Generally, each chapter will have the 'verbatim posts' in the AM, giving you time to read it, then, a PM post in the afternoon, giving you 'explanations' and a time to re-read the chapter.
Please remember, all are to be used with the Bible and will be more meaningful as you look up all the Scripture references. Take some 'deep draughts' from this wonderful prophetic book, seeing as much of Jesus; His first coming, as well as His Second Coming. You are about to enter upon 'Holy Ground', so, 'take off your shoes'! [Joshua 5:15] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
The prophecy was written in 520 B.C. This book has the characteristics of an apocalypse. That is, a book 'revealing' or 'disclosing' something otherwise unknown; which predict events at the end of the age or world. The Book of Revelation of the New Testament is an example of 'the Apocalypse'. The visions resemble those in the Books of Daniel and Ezekiel and Revelation. Daniel and Ezekiel were born in the land of Israel but wrote their books outside of it. Zechariah was born outside of the land down by the canals of Babylon, but he wrote in the land. It is interesting that Daniel, Ezekiel, and John were all outside Israel when they wrote. Only Zechariah was in that land when he wrote his apocalyptic visions.audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
In the dark day of discouragement which blanketed the remnant, he saw the glory in all of the rapture and vision of hope. He has more messianic prophecies than any of the other minor prophets. This is therefore an important and interesting book. And, that my friends is the 'special treat'!!!!
Although Zechariah was contemporary with Haggai, his book is in direct contrast to Haggai’s. They definitely knew each other and prophesied to the same people at the same period of time. Yet their prophecies are just about as different as any two could be. They are literally ages apart even though they were given to the same people at the same time. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Haggai was down there at the foundation of the temple measuring it. He really had his feet on the ground. Zechariah was a man with his head in the air. Anyone who has ten visions in one night is doing pretty well! He was entirely visionary, whereas Haggai was entirely practical. Yet they were both speaking for God to the same people at the same time concerning the same problem. Also they both speak to us today, but each in his own manner. We need to recognize that these two types of men are still needed today.
Thank you for returning Friday, July 31, 2020, when we will post our first chapter, and notes in the evening, so that you will have a 'taste' of what 'delightful treats' will be posting through Chapter 14 of the Book of Zechariah. Amen. Amen.
